Baylor Commit #20 is OG Rami Hammad!

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE

Baylor pulled a big switch tonight from Oklahoma State when 3* Rami Hammad made the call for the Bears.

It's been a little while since our last recruiting commitment, so I'm out of practice in writing a commitment post, but here goes. Baylor's Scout site reported a few minutes ago that Irving HS's Rami Hammad switched his oral commitment from Oklahoma State to the Bears after having visited this past weekend. Hammad's commitment gives Baylor two high school offensive linemen for the 2013 class, both of whom play on the interior, something we sorely needed in this class given our current deficiencies. This probably puts an end to our recruiting in that area since we also have a JUCO OL, Simo Kulmaviita, to shore things up immediately. Here's Rami's vitals:

Name: Rami Hammad
School: Irving HS (Irving, TX)
Position: OG
Height: 6-5
Weight: 320
40 Time: 5.5
Links/Ranks: Rivals (3*, 5.6), Scout (3*, #29 OG), 247Sports (3*, 88), ESPN (3*)

Hammad is someone we were after quite a while ago before he committed rather unexpectedly to Oklahoma State. The switch now is somewhat more expected since he just visited at Homecoming and reportedly had quite a good time. He's a huge player already, as you can see, and is almost definitely ticketed for the interior line, where he'll be quite the earthmover immediately. It will be interesting to see how he progresses physically in Kaz's system at Baylor, but he obviously has all the tools you could hope for from an offensive lineman. Scoring his commitment is a major coup for Art Briles and company, not only because he is a good player, but because he was committed to another conference rival.

I couldn't find any youtube highlight videos, but I did find this from ESPN's Recruiting Nation. Welcome to the family, Rami!
