Daily Bears Reports: Saturday 7/9- Jalen Pitre Speaks With ESPN

NCAA Football: Russell Athletic Bowl-North Carolina vs Baylor Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

Jalen Pitre, Baylor’s lone 2017 commit, spoke with Max Olson:

Are you proud of the fact that, when everyone else was backing out, you stayed loyal to Baylor?

Pitre: I am proud. I’m firmly committed. I’m trying to be an early enrollee in January and just trying to get to work. I’d be happy to help recruit for this class. My parents have been very supportive about that and told me they’re with me wherever I go. I just felt like the education would be great for me and I can do something good there. I’m going to stick with Baylor. I think it’s my best bet to get in there early and try to work hard and get playing time.

Baylor is ranked eighth, and Johnny Jefferson is Baylor’s breakout player, according to Brian Pedersen of Bleacher Report:

That gave him an even 1,000 yards for the year with eight TDs and a strong 7.35 yards-per-carry average, yet that work was overshadowed by Baylor's overall rushing numbers, a bowl-record 645 yards and seven TDs on 84 carries.

Taurean Prince should make his debut for the Hawks in the next few days, per Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

The Hawks agreed to the deal that sent Teague to the Pacers before the draft. The Jazz selected Prince at the request of the Hawks. The deal was announced Thursday with the end of the NBA moratorium period. The final step will be league approval, which could come in the next few days.
