Jim Callis of Baseball America reports that the Blue Jays will sign third-round OF Anthony Alford and allow him to play football at Southern Mississippi.

Alford was thought by many teams to be unsignable due to his football commitment, but the Jays have managed to reel him in by allowing him to play on the gridiron, as well. Callis reports that his signing bonus may be close to double the $424,400 value slotted for the 112th overall pick. Alford is very raw and will take even longer to develop with football also in the picture, but he has a ton of upside as a speedster with plus power potential.
