Daily Bears Reports 1/25- New Football Commitment, Hoops, and More!

New, comments

With apologies to 2012, 2017 may end up being the year of the Bear

Recruiting:

Late last night, Baylor’s Director of Player Personnel sent another tweet that tells everyone Baylor is about to get another recruit:

The announcement has not been made as of publication time. But it should come soon.

Even with a new commitment coming, Baylor won’t be done. We mentioned Chabastin Taylor, Johnathan Lovett, and DeMarco Artis yesterday, and there are a few other possibilities too. As the (already) top 40 class reaches its final spots, expect the action to continue for the next week.

Chris Miller, a current Colorado commitment, is another name to watch. EJ Holland of Texas’ 247 site predicts he’ll flip his commitment to Baylor.

Chidi Ogbonnaya is also a potential flip. The current Houston commitment is crystal balled to Baylor by two folks at 247.

DeMarco Artis is no longer committed to Florida State, per Chris Nee of FSU’s 247 site. The top 600 national player was a longtime Florida State commitment the Bears were targeting. Nee predicts Artis will end up at Baylor.

Hoops:

With West Virginia’s win over Kansas, Baylor can tie Kansas in the Big 12 standings with a win over Texas Tech today. I previewed the action and offered a prediction here.

Villanova and Kentucky fell as well. If Baylor takes care of business this week, they should certainly be ranked at least #2 on Monday.

It felt weird for all of us, Fank.

The Lady Bears are also in action today. They play at 7 at Kansas State. Baylorbears.com has a look:

The No. 2/2 Baylor Lady Bears (19-1, 8-0) hit the road for their second consecutive Top 25 matchup at No. 25/rv Kansas State (15-5, 5-1) on Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017. Tip off is slated for 7 p.m. (CT) inside Bramlage Coliseum in Manhattan, Kan. The Lady Bears are on a 17-game win streak, which is the second longest nationally behind Connecticut (93), and can clinch a 17th consecutive 20-win season with a victory.
