2016 Top 20 Player Mark Vital Commits to Baylor!

Oh yeah!!

USA TODAY Sports

Now that's the Scott Drew recruiting process we've all come to love. An elite prospect a few years away who would likely have had much more recruiting buzz had he waited a year or two? Perfect!

Mark Vital is a 2016 6'4" Small Forward who is rated as a National Top 20 (#18) player by 247 Sports and a 5-Star player by their composite ranking. His offer list already included Louisville, Arizona, and LSU, but tonight he chose our Baylor Bears.

ESPN ($) describes him as a slasher-type with a quick first step and strong finishing moves at the rim.

Some tweets to help fill in more information/build your excitement for Baylor's newest commit to follow. Welcome to Baylor, Mark Vital! Sic'em! #BGOD
