As I said in the title, the big Baylor football news yesterday was the signing of two JUCO transfers to their transfer papers. Both will enroll for the January term and I would expect that one will definitely start next year (the LB Mackey) while the other will probably provide good depth and be in the rotation at DT (Searcy). Tech made a late run at Mackey as part of their JUCO class of 7 yesterday. That's the biggest midterm JUCO class I've ever heard of.
