The suspense didn’t last long. Monte Harrison, a Nebraska wide receiver signee, has agreed to terms of a contract with the Milwaukee Brewers. Harrison, a dual-sport athlete, was selected by the Brewers in the second round of the 2014 MLB Draft. His decision to play for the Huskers or begin a professional baseball career came quickly.  Well that drama ended fast: according to @jimcallisMLB, #Huskers football & baseball signee Monte Harrison has signed w/Brewers for $1.8M — Adam Krueger (@AdamKrueger1011) June 7, 2014 #Brewers have signed 2nd round pick Monte Harrison for $1.8MM, per @jimcallisMLB. He was committed to play football at Nebraska. Big get! — The Brewer Nation (@BrewerNation) June 7, 2014 Harrison, a four-star wide receiver prospect according to Rivals.com, would have played both football and baseball for the Huskers. Nebraska’s baseball coach, Darin Erstad, was a two-sport star for Nebraska, too. Erstad went on to become a No. 1 pick in the MLB Draft and played in the league for more than a decade. Harrison is expected to be an outfielder for the Brewers. He was considered by many to be the best athlete in the draft.
