Brien Taylor, the No. 1 pick in the June draft, apparently will turn down the New York Yankees' latest offer and attend Louisburg College in Raleigh, N.C.
The school said that Bettie Taylor, Brien's mother, called to confirm that her 19-year-old son would report for freshman orientation Sunday.
Taylor reportedly has refused a contract offer worth about $650,000. He and his mother have been seeking a three-year, $1.2 million deal.
