2/1: NSD... #BaylorLit

Baylor finishes the 2017 recruiting class with 27 commitments. Matt Rhule came to Baylor, and added 26 commitments in the past month and six days. Wow. This is the best recruiting job I’ve witnessed in my lifetime.
Also, I’ll formulate the 2018 Wish List within the next couple of days or so.

Beezy Out.


Baylor is offering guys for the 2018 class too.

Casey Phillips, an offensive tackle, picked up an offer.

The Bears offered Stanley Hackett, a running back from the Houston area. 247 thinks Texas Tech is the favorite for his services.

Colt Barber of SicEm365 thinks he could play wide receiver as well:

Sic ‘Em!

2/6: Finished up the 2018 Wish List and posted it on the thread! hopefully, there will be a lot of movement and momentum with Rhule’s latest class!

2/20: Big weekend for your Baylor Bears’ Football Recruiting! Two players committed this weekend: WR Josh Fleeks out of Cedar Hill and OT Jackson Kimble from Southlake Carroll! Both announced their commitments on Saturday, in the midst of Baylor’s first official Junior Day of the 2018 recruiting cycle! #WacOver18 is the new # to add to your saved searches on Twitter. Rhule and the staff are making Football Recruiting Fun Again!
