Kohl Stewart, the fourth-overall draft pick, has signed with the Minnesota Twins.

Stewart, who pitched for St. Pius X in Houston, decided on baseball over football earlier this month. He was a top-ranked quarterback recruit who was a part of the Texas A&M Aggies' 2013 recruiting class.

"My dream is to pitch in the big leagues and that kind of has always been my dream," Stewart said to CSN earlier this month. "So, for me to give that my best effort, I think that I'm young and I think that I have a lot of energy, and I think that I'm extremely committed to grinding it out for however long I need to try to make it.

"I just think that right now, I have a lot of opportunities with the Twins to take advantage of, and I think that it's just time for me to just focus on baseball and give that my best effort."

According to several reports, Stewart received the exact slot bonus of $4,544,400.
