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:

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.

Update: Yesterday (7/15), Baylor held a summer recruiting camp. I have no idea how many elite recruits were there, but McLane held a lot of talent yesterday. One thing I saw that I liked was that current Baylor players were in attendance and could answer any question the recruits had. That's all for now.

CB Noah Daniels (7/20): Committed to Baylor today! After months of bad news, it looks like the sun shine is arriving! The 6'0 cornerback from League City, Texas is tall and fast. Just what Baylor needs going forward! The 3-star cornerback runs a 4.51 40-yard dash. That is *flame emoji*

WR Hezekiah Jones (7/29): Announced his commitment to Texas A&M today via Twitter. If you want to see the video, be my guest.

Changelog:

7/1: Created the July Recruiting Notes thread
