Merkin says all that is left may be just a physical:

A White Sox source told MLB.com nothing was official as of yet with Walker’s signing. However, it could be at the stage of just needing a physical to bring Walker into the fold.

BTW, here’s a 1 minute scouting video of Walker:

UPDATE: Gonzales  @ CT:

The Chicago White Sox have reached an agreement with their first pick in the June amateur draft, Central Arizona College switch-hitting outfielder Keenyn Walker.

The signging will become official by next Tuesday, after Walker passes a physical examination.

“It’s a huge relief for me,” Walker said Wednesday at his Salt Lake City home. “After Friday, I thought we were going all the way to the (Aug. 15) deadline again. But we finally got it done.”

Once signed, Walker will report to the Sox’s short-season Great Falls affiliate in Montana.
