Saturday Daily Bears Report: These Kids Are Alright

New, comment

Baylor picked up two 2016 commitments yesterday, both of whom should be major contributors when the time comes.

'Cruitin Frenzy

Yesterday's football camp in Waco was one of the most successful in Baylor history, yielding two immensely talented recruits.

Patrick Hudson is a consensus five-star offensive tackle from Silsbee, TX. Silsbee is in the same 409 area code that has given us Kam Martin, Terrance Singleton, and Tre'von Armstead. Dauphine is also from the area. Hudson had been considered a soft A&M commit until yesterday, when he informed the staff of his choice as camp came to a close. Hudson will be a mammoth contributor to the offense if his commitment holds for a year and a half until signing day.

Tren'Davian Dickson is an enigma by comparison. The Navasota receiver is around six feet tall, and most of his film is for basketball. He has good speed and crazy hops, both of which are signs of good things to come in terms of athleticism. He hasn't been ranked by any of the recruiting services yet, but most who have seen him project him as a four-star prospect. If he'd been entered as such yesterday, Baylor would be sitting atop the recruiting class rankings for 2016. Last season at Navasota he racked up 823 yards and 13 touchdowns as a sophomore, and averaged more then 20 yards per reception. He's primed for a breakout season this year.

Bromell and Holmes in Eugene

Baylor track stars Trayvon Bromell and TJ Holmes are in Eugene, Oregon for the third time this year. They're competing in the Junior World Championships to build their resume for more international competition in the future. Bromell holds the junior world record in the 100m, and Holmes' times are near the top internationally in the 400m hurdles.

The Daily Bear

Today's Daily Bear can't really be explained, so you'll just have to watch it.
