JUCO DT Terell Brooks rejoins Baylor's 2013 class

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

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.

The other news that Baylor fans have been waiting for has finally arrived: DT Terell Brooks will sign tomorrow with Baylor and join the program this coming summer. Brooks has a tremendous opportunity to earn immediate playing time with Baylor given our deficiencies up front, and though his commitment may not get the fanfare of Andrew Billings', his potential to impact Baylor's 2013 team is probably even greater.

Billings may be the better player down the road, but my hope is that the pair form a strong tandem in the middle and pave the way for a resurgent Baylor defense in 2013.

Brooks, a JUCO All-American this season, chose the Bears again over offers from Kansas State and Miami, among others. The 6-4, 290-pound defensive tackle is exactly what our defense needed. Welcome back, Terell!

This turned out to be quite a good day, after all! I think Phil Bennett might be having himself an adult beverage or two in celebration. Shoot, I might do the same. But not until after I finish the a matrix I'm working of our 2013 class. Unless something crazy happens, Brooks should finish things off. Baylor will go into NSD tomorrow with 24 commits, one short of our probable goal.
