JUCO 7' Joseph Acuil Commits to Baylor

Coach Scott Drew received a commit from sizable JUCO PF Joseph Acuil.

First reported by Brad Winton of @JucoReporting, Melbourne-native Joseph Acuil (7'0/F/2015) of Neosho CC has committed to Baylor.

It was known that Acuil was a target, but I personally don't know for how long. Some are congratulating Coach Drew on finding an Isaiah Austin replacement, but time will tell.

From the Neosho Community College Athletics website:

Joseph Acuil was named First Team All-Conference, Second Team All-Region VI, and the Jayhawk East Defensive Player of the Year. Acuil was an imposing presence in the middle of the Neosho defense. The 7-0 freshman recorded a Region VI leading 88 blocks on the season, averaging nearly 3.0 blocks per game. Acuil tallied a team best 11 double-doubles including five straight games in the heart of the conference schedule. Acuil recorded 15 games with 10 or more rebounds and 6 games with 5 or more blocks. For the season he averaged 11.8 points, 9.3 rebounds, and 2.8 blocks per game.
