Scout’s No. 27 running back, Iverson Clement, spoke to Brian Dohn about Baylor and his recruitment:
Baylor: "With Harrison Hand going down there, and Jon Lovett, being my cousin, going down there, it definitely would be nice to visit there and see what's up there. (Defensive backs) coach Fran (Francis Brown) and (coach) Matt Rhule, they changed Temple around, and then going down there, I think they will definitely change that around big-time doing what they did at a smaller school. I believe they will do that at Baylor."
Jackson Kimble, a Southlake Carroll offensive lineman, is committed to the Bears. He visited Arkansas. But SEC Country’s Trent Shadid has reasons why Kimble is likely to remain a Bear:
Kimble (6-foot-5, 270 pounds) is firmly pledged to the Bears over offers from 7 other programs, including Arkansas. However, the Razorbacks haven’t fallen completely off his radar. They’ve apparently emerged as one of his next-best options as he plans to visit this weekend. He hasn’t visited anywhere except Baylor to this point.
“The only places other than Baylor I would visit would be a school that I would seriously consider an offer from,” Kimble recently told SEC Country.
Tony Adame of Baylor 247 spoke with Tyreke Smith, a defensive end and new Baylor offer:
"Me and Coach Robinson, we've been connecting for awhile," Smith said. "Just developing a great relationship over time, and I've been telling him I'm going to work my hardest to get out there and visit. Since he started recruiting me, we've just had a good connection. It was actually me who called him on Tuesday, just to catch up and see how everything was going out there. It turns out I'd had the offer since January or something, it just never came up again until last night."
John Werner of the Waco Tribune-Herald had this on Baylor’s wide receivers:
Though he’s only been at Baylor since January, former Cypress Ranch High School star R.J. Sneed has already made some inroads at receiver. His instincts and willingness to soak up everything the coaches say have worked in his favor.
“R.J. has brought professionalism and attention to detail that’s rare for a young person his age,” Rhule said.
After seeing limited time in Briles’ spread offense, Baylor’s tight ends are excited to become a bigger part of the game plan.
Baylor tennis knocked off Texas:
This came one day after Tom Herman announced an odd policy. You cannot deny there is a correlation between Tom Herman’s announcement and Baylor beating Texas in tennis:
