Daily Bears Reports 5/4- Football, Basketball and Recruiting

The news continues!

NCAA Football: Baylor at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports


Jim Grobe and David Crowder represented Baylor on the golf course. From Julie Hays of KWTX:

Former interim Baylor football coach Jim Grobe and Grammy-nominated Christian Rocker David Crowder paired up to tee off at the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Challenge in Atlanta.

The competition Tuesday featured pairings that include a university head coach and an alum competing in a scramble format against other university teams from around the country.


Former Baylor assistant and current head coach of Oral Roberts, Paul Mills, has hired former Baylor video coordinator Sam Patterson as an assistant coach. That will leave two openings for Scott Drew. Congratulations to Mills on getting a shot as a head coach, and Patterson on joining Mills’ staff.

The current staff is busy working to round out this class. Lead assistant Jerome Tang has been on the road and in the air:

Jon Rothstein of CBS and Fan Rag Sports reported Baylor is in the mix for Vance Jackson:

In the basketball recruiting post I did before the news broke that Johnathan Motley would remain in the NBA Draft, I thought Jackson was the most likely guy to round out Baylor’s class if Motley left.

Rutgers and Washington are real players for his services too. Jackson is set to sit out a year, then he’ll play three seasons. The 6’7 sharpshooter would give the Bears some positional flexibility in 2019. We don’t know a ton about the 2018 recruiting class yet, but a former top 60 recruit that shoots 41% from 3-point range can always find a way on the court.
