Fawcett @ IN:

[David] Herbek, who went in the 15th round to the Chicago White Sox, said he will sign with the team Sunday and then leave Monday for Great Falls, home of Chicago’s rookie-level team in the Pioneer League. The league’s season begins June 20. … Herbek had no college eligibility left, which usually means drafted players receive no higher than a standard $1,000 signing bonus. Herbek did not provide specifics, but he said he received “a little bit more.”

Baseball America’s scouting report:

James Madison’s shortstop David Herbek has shown a decent amount of power, batting .374/.456/.701 with 15 home runs. That drew scouts’ interest because Herbek also has a chance to stick at shortstop.

PerfectGame.org’s scouting report (2007):

David Herbek is a 2007 MIF that attends Battlefield HS and resides in Gainesville, VA with a 6’1″, 170 lb. frame. David has an athletic build with some good raw hitting tools. At the plate David shows quick wrists with easy lift in his swing and solid line-drive contact. David tends to get his bat wrapped too much and needs to get ready to hit earlier. In the field David showed good actions to the ball but struggled with his throws some. He looks like he would work out best at second base right now. David is a player that will attract the attention of many smaller college programs.

Here are his College Stats:
