I know this list looks like it's just a bunch of the top recruits who have shown interest in Baylor, and that's exactly what it is. This list will change through the recruiting cycle. It's the list of recruits who could commit to Baylor and not make me surprised.

Updates:

5/29: ....Someone give me some good news, please. Baylor lost every commitment today outside of Kellen Mond and Jalen Pitre. It remains to be seen what Mond will do, seeing as he had an extremely close relationship with Art Briles.

QB Kellen Mond (6/1): And then there was one. Kellen decommitted today. Not surprising.

NB Jalen Pitre (6/8): Pitre is staying committed! Pitre may be my favorite recruit in a while, due to this article about why he is staying committed to Baylor. Great read, if you have the time.

S Grant Delpit (6/16): Said that he will be announcing his commitment at The Opening 2016. Be on the look out for more information about him.

Changelog:

6/1: Created the June Recruiting Notes, added decommittment of Kellen Mond
6/2: Cleaned up the thread
6/8: Added update on Jalen Pitre
6/16: Updated thread and CB predictions, removed Austin Deculus from Wish List, update on Grant Delpit
6/20: Baylor finally hit rock bottom for recruiting guys...Baylor is finally ranked in the triple digits
