Even though Sebastian Keane was drafted in the 11th round, the pitcher was one of the more notable Red Sox picks last month.

The North Andover High star, however, won't be joining up with Sox after all ... at least not for the next three years.

According to the Eagle-Tribune, Keane has decided to attend Northeastern University instead of signing with the Red Sox. This comes after the team came to terms with 13th-rounder Blake Lobier, a high school pitcher who reeled in a $500,000 signing bonus. That agreement severely limited the amount left available to allocate toward the local product.

Keane, who grew up a Yankees fan, was reportedly seeking a signing bonus in the neighborhood of $1 million. Teams have until July 12 to lock up draft picks.
