In actulity, he did not attend college. Alex had a baseball scholarship to attend the University of Miami. However, while on his way to his first college class his agent tracked him down in order for him to sign a professional contract.

This is important because of the rules surrounding eligibility and maintaining the amateur status as a college athlete. Had Rodriguez attended that class (or technically get within 50 feet of the classroom), he would have been ineligible for the Major League Baseball Draft until after his junior year in college.

Rodriguez signed a letter of intent to play baseball for the University of Miami and was also recruited by the university to play quarterback for its football team. Rodriguez turned down Miami's baseball scholarship and never played College Baseball, opting instead to sign with the Seattle Mariners after being selected in the first round of the amateur draft at the age of 17. His Major League debut was just before his 19th birthday.
