On the eve of National Signing Day and barring something crazy happening in the next 24 hours, here's Baylor's 2013 recruiting as it should be when the ink dries and the fax machines spin tomorrow. It's quite possibly the best recruiting class in Baylor's Big 12 history.
After thinking it over a bit and visiting the campus officially this weekend, the other of Baylor's two potential commits today reaffirmed that he will be a Bear. That means Baylor went 2-for-2 today on impact prospects at a need position.
Tomorrow may be National Signing Day, the single most-important event in the growth and development of a program that doesn't happen on a field of play, but today might as well be mini-NSD. Two of Baylor's top remaining targets-- HS DT Andrew Billings and JUCO DT Terell Brooks-- are set to announce .
Needing offensive line help in the worst way after recent losses, Baylor made a splash this afternoon by flipping a commit from Texas Tech in OG Maurice Porter. Baylor now has both Missouri City HS guards in our 2013 recruiting class.
If you need more proof that you can't make someone love you, we have it now in the form of Dionte Savage's apparent decision to decommit. Baylor's OL class just lost its best remaining player, and our hole at RG remains.
One year after bringing in the 5A Offensive Player of the Year in Terrence Singleton, Baylor switched sides to grab a star linebacker from Desoto. Aside from inroads into one of the best programs in the state at churning out talent, Young will be playmaking ability to Waco in the 2013 class.
OG Dionte Savage and DT Terell Brooks are set to make their decisions known today at some point or another. Both fill tremendous needs for this Baylor class, if they come, and are critical components of the Bears 2013 roster.
I missed this when it happened a few minutes ago and am just now catching up-- according to A&M's 247Sports site, 4* Southlake QB Kenny Hill will stick with his A&M commitment and sign with the Aggies next week. Baylor will have to move on to our next target in the 2013 class.
Remember that thread I had two days ago about Billings announcing on Monday? Well ... yeah. He's not. He's announcing Tuesday, and this time the news comes from Smoaky himself, the man who will carry the announcement live. Yay for Tuesday!
With just under a week left before National Signing Day in the 2013 season, it's time to look at Baylor's priorities for the remaining spots and where any new offers are likely to go. There's still quite a bit of talent out there if the Bears can finish strong.
We're nine short days away from National Signing Day in college football. With the countdown on and news breaking across the country about where prized prospects will commit, Dan Rubenstein takes a look at the landscape across the Big 12. The usual titans on the recruiting trail -- Texas and Oklahoma -- have outpaced the field thus far, while Oklahoma State, and to a lesser extent Baylor, continue to bring in top talent, and hope to stock the cupboard even further once February 6th has come and gone.
