Albert Burford of the New Orleans Times-Picayune reports that No. 4 overall pick Kevin Gausman will return for his junior season at LSU rather than sign with the Orioles.
Gausman told the Times-Picayune that it's "turning out to be a tough decision" and "there are still things for me to accomplish as a Tiger." He didn't exactly totally commit to returning to school, though, saying "we'll see what happens." The report should be taken with a grain of salt, as it could just be posturing by Gausman's representatives as we get close to the deadline on Friday.
