Grupp @ PTR:

As a fifth-year senior, Pitt catcher Kevan Smith held no leverage to negotiate in the MLB draft. So when the Chicago White Sox took him in the seventh round, the all-Big East slugger expected a token signing bonus.

“I was ready to sign for $1,000 and a plane ticket,” he said. “They ended up giving me $60,000.”

Baseball America’s scouting report:
Smith provides a little more value than other Pennsylvania college bats this year because he’s a catcher. He has a football background and is a strong, physical player whose power trumps his hitting despite leading the team with a .406 average in 192 at-bats. He receives well enough and could profile well as a backup. Chester doesn’t have a great body, but has big power, leading the Panthers with 14 home runs.

Here’s his page at Pittsburgh.
