Baylor had nobody else on the preseason team. Fank notes:

Taylor Young and Jordan Feuerbacher are receiving some award love though. From the Waco Tribune-Herald:

Baylor senior tight end Jordan Feuerbacher has been named to the John Mackey Award watch list. The award is given annually to the nation’s top tight end.

Feuerbacher has played in 29 games for the Bears with 10 starts. He has nine career receptions including seven for 104 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Baylor senior linebacker Taylor Young has been nominated for the 2017 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team.

Jerry Stackhouse says Brady Heslip may be the world’s best shooter. From Ben Rohrbach of Yahoo:

Stackhouse: “I get a Brady Heslip, who I think is probably one of, if not the best shooter in the world.”

Lowe: “Wow! Better than Steph Curry?”

Stackhouse: “I put him to the test with Steph Curry any day. He’s that good of a shooter.”

Matt Norlander of CBS has Baylor hoops 5th in his preseason look at the Big 12:

The Bears weren't supposed to be that good last season, then wound up with a No. 3 seed and an All-America candidate (Motley). Manu Lecomte returns, and the success of next season rests on him.
