Any word on Kentrail Davis' summer?

Anyone heard anything on negotiations with him? Most of the 1st rounders are yet to sign, and being one of those supplemental picks, I haven't heard much on him this summer.
I've heard he's asking for an astronomical amount of money from the Brewers. The thing Kentrail has going for him is the leverage to come back if he chooses to do so. He could even come back again after that. So, he's in a pretty good spot. We will just have to wait and see what happens.
It should be noted that Boras is his agent and he has no problem telling guys to come back to school or play indie ball.
From KNS:
Raleigh is less optimistic about Davis returning for his junior season. The Vols take some hope in the fact that Davis picked tough negotiator Scott Boras for his agent. A prior Boras client, UT pitcher Luke Hochevar, refused to sign with the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005 as a first-rounder.

"The truth of the matter is that they (Boras clients) tend to go to school more often than non-Boras guys,'' Raleigh said.

"Kentrail can still get better and he turned down a lot of money out of high school.''
