Baylor has received a commitment from graduate transfer TE Kenny Yeboah. Yeboah comes from Temple where he was originally recruited by coach Rhule. This past season he had 19 catches for 233 yards.
Honored and BLESSED to announce that I will be continuing my MASTERS and last year of athletic eligibility at BAYLOR UNIVERSITY. This is SUCH a blessing and I cannot wait to grind and begin my new journey. #SicEm ✊ @BUFootball pic.twitter.com/BFEM1Lmz4g— Kenny Yeboah (@Kenny_Yeboah84) December 20, 2019
At 6-5, 240lbs, Yeboah has the requisite size and ability to play immediately. Baylor has taken several tight ends since coach Rhule arrived—including Christoph Henle, Ben Sims, Tyler Henderson, and Sam Snyder—but all are still quite young and have yet to gain the full trust of the coaching staff.
Yeboah was a lightly recruited project coming out of high school in Pennsylvania. His 247 profile listed him at 6-5 210 lbs, and his film shows him playing exclusively WR. Over the past few years he has put on the necessary weight to become a competent blocker while retaining the ball skills and agility necessary to be a pass catching threat.
Interesting, Baylor taking a grad transfer TE. Baylor wants so badly to play out of 11 and 12 personnel, but they've been unidimensional out of those looks. This gives them an immediate boost in those formations. https://t.co/V4KL4kHINz— Travis (@Travis_Roeder) December 20, 2019
Look for Yeboah to be an immediate starter, and probably allow for Baylor to redshirt Christoph Henle and move Rob Saulin back to DL. Yeboah is not flashy, but he will probably be on the field for >50% of Baylor’s offensive snaps. This commitment will not see much fanfare, but could significantly impact Baylor’s 2020 season.
