Baylor Football Recruiting Notes (updated 1/23)

Recruiting is picking up!

“Guess who’s back
Back again
Beezy’s back
Tell a friend”

Yes, hello fellow ODB faithful, I have returned from the depths of despair (or as I like to call it, Introductory Hebrew I). After a tumultuous season, Baylor has now revamped the football program. The hiring of Matt Rhule was one that was unexpected but has paid tremendous dividends. With the staff coming into place, recruiting for Baylor Football has started once again. Less than a month after Matt Rhule was hired, he got commitments from four more players. Along with the already-signed Jalen Pitre, Baylor received commitments from Trevon Lewis (a safety), Timarcus Davis (a DB from College Station), and Charlie Brewer, the QB from the 6A-state title winning Lake Travis High School. Let’s see if Rhule can keep it going!

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.

1/5: If anyone sees anything about an offer or visit, PLEASE comment it on this article. I can't always keep track of what is going on with recruiting news.

1/10: Thank you for all the comments! Like I said earlier, I will not be able to make many changes on the weekdays. Looks like the comment section has a pretty good idea about who we are actively recruiting.

1/23: #BaylorLit strikes again... And I’m not going to include Lockhart in this class, since he cannot play immediately. However, Baylor football fans got a real taste of what the future will look like!

1/5: Published the January recruiting notes
1/10: Updated the thread, a few commits!
1/23: Tons of commits! Tons of 3-stars! Baylor is Back?
