Culver backs out of Maryland

As if there needed to be another indication that first-round pick Cito Culver plans to sign with the Yankees, the young shortstop sent a pretty clear signal this week.

According to my old friend Jim Mandelaro, Culver has backed out of his commitment to the University of Maryland and will travel to the Yankees minor league complex tonight. It’s a three-day visit, and Culver told Mandelaro that he’s not sure what’s on the schedule other than a physical.

By my count, that leaves only two steps: Agreeing on money and finding a working ink pen. I like the Pilot G-2, but whatever’s handy should work.

Culver can’t officially sign until the graduates from high school. That’s happening on Sunday.
