Not long after Ish Wainright became the first Baylor basketball player to come on Our Daily Podcast, he won this award:

That means there is a 100% correlation between eligible athletes coming on the podcast and winning this award. You can listen to it here.
Congratulations Ish! He represented Baylor well for four years, and will be a huge addition to the football team.
Seth Russell also picked up an award. He’ll look to make the Raiders as well.

Jake Trotter of ESPN ranks Baylor football 7th in the Big 12:
7. Baylor Bears (7): The story of the spring on the field for Baylor was Matt Rhule implementing his version of a pro-style offense. The Bears do boast one of the better one-two combinations at running back in the league in Terence Williams and JaMycal Hasty, and they should thrive in the new offense. But the rest of the offensive cast remains a massive unknown going into the season.
Steve Wiltfong of 247 has a good look at Baylor’s new signees (free):
A Texas source said with the size and speed Woods and Milton bring to the table, they’ll be future pros. A sub 11-second guy in the 100-meter dash, Woods has top-of-the-draft upside at 6-foot-2, 175 pounds and Milton may be the fastest player the Bears have recruited and that’s saying something.
