Baylor defense gets a boost from OLB/S Cordell Dorsey

I didn't expect to get any good news today on the recruiting front, but a watched pot never boils, it seems. Abilene OLB/S Cordell Dorsey made the call for the Bears on twitter, giving us a dozen commitments in the 2014 class.

Baylor fans got a bit of unexpected good news a few minutes ago with the commitment of Abilene OLB/S Cordell Dorsey (@KiDdDoRsEy), the fourth in a row from a guy we probably didn't expect. It's a welcome one, regardless, as Dorsey joins a burgeoning defensive class that now includes OLB/DE Jamie Jacobs and DE Xavier Jacobs.

Dorsey is what I would call a high-3* recruit, sporting a grade of 88 on 247Sports and offers from Oregon State, Texas Tech, and Washington State. He told SB Nation's Wescott Eberts last week a position switch to safety, where he'll probably play college ball, has also garnered him attention from Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Florida State, as well. He's listed at 6-2, 200 pounds as of this moment.

The big departure from what we've heard before, particularly in Wescott's article last week, is that Dorsey made his decision so quickly. He's told basically everyone that he was going to visit numerous camps this summer before deciding. That apparently went out the window, and he's now a Baylor Bear.

Unfortunately, his HUDL videos are set on private, something I'll try to get changed, but they're probably not all that valuable, anyway. Like I said, he's changing from outside linebacker, where he's a bit undersized, to safety this season. Baylor probably envisions him playing our hybrid position someday, assuming we continue to have it.

Check out the sidebar article above for Wescott's take on Baylor's newest commitment. I think you'll find that he's a big fan. Twelve commitments gets us nearly halfway to our probable goal for the 2014 class in near record time. Baylor is building something here, ladies and gentlemen. The momentum is undeniable.
