Wednesday Daily Bears Report: Baylor Speed

New, 23 comments

Forget about the SEC. Baylor is going to be the end-all-be-all of speed in college football after last night's commitment.

The Headline

John Humphrey, a WR/CB out of Clear Falls, Texas, is a Bear. Humphrey could play offense or defense in college and has clocked a 4.25 40-yard dash. His twitter profile claims that he is the fastest recruit in the nation. I can't verify that fact, but it wouldn't surprise me. Humphrey's commitment comes on the heels of JaMycal Hasty, who has recorded a 4.29, and could usher in a commitment from CB Jordan Tolbert, with whom Humphrey has a great relationship.

2015 DBs who are looking to play in the Big 12 must be getting really nervous about their future matchups with Baylor.

More Sport!

Equestrian places six on NCEA All-America squads - Baylor's equestrian team landed six riders on the NCEA's All-America teams last week including three first-team selections. The sport I really want to see involved actual bears riding horses, not human bears riding horses. But, alas.

Men's Tennis closes regular season with No. 7 Texas - The sixth-ranked Baylor men's tennis team (20-5, 3-1) will host the seventh-ranked Texas Longhorns (19-3, 3-0) in its final regular season match at the Hurd Tennis Center on Wednesday at 6 p.m. Godspeed, gents.

Baseball blanks Texas Southern for second straight win - Baylor baseball earned a 1-0 win over Texas Southern on Tuesday night at Baylor Ballpark. The Bears' (17-19) victory against the Tigers (16-22) was fueled by stellar pitching from Drew Tolson, Nick Lewis and Josh Michalec. Thank you for not losding to Texas Southern.

Technology

Baylor to enhance gameday experience at McLane Stadium - As Baylor Bears football fans and players open the 2014 season in their new home, McLane Stadium in Waco, Texas, they will also experience a new LED video display designed and manufactured by Daktronics. It's gonna be rad.

Also, I've been discussing this idea with a few people and I think I can pull it off. I'm going to be flag coordinator for the Baylor Line this coming football season, and I've decided to capture all of the pre-game action on the field with a GoPro camera and put together a highlight reel from the footage. It will include the running of the Baylor Line (from the ramp until they reach their seats), the players coming through the tunnel, and the first few minutes of game footage from the field coordinator's booth in front of the student section. I may lend it to Ted for hype video purposes, or I may just cobble it together myself and post it somewhere. Anyways, should be pretty cool.
