Has a prospect chosen baseball over football?
 
I know there is a ton of players who play both so probably yes, a ton. But like Russell Wilson, Jameis Winston, I heard someone say Ricky Williams, seems like the big name college guys choose football no?

Found this article about other college QBs who chose baseball. But I don't recognize any of their names so they probably weren't great QBs. Todd Helton, Shea Morenz, Joe Borchard and Kyle Parker.
 
And this article:

Seems like no highly ranked QB has chosen baseball over football.

Yeah he's in the 2nd article I posted. Sounds like he could have gone and played in the NFL and done well.

Joe Mauer was a pretty highly rated QB prospect, but he never actually played at the college level.
