Baylor basketball landed their first commitment of the 2020 class: LJ Cryer, a 4-star guard from Katy, Texas.

Cryer is ranked 41st in his class by ESPN, 68th by 247 and 87th by Rivals. Corey Evans of Rivals broke the commitment, then Ashley Hodge of SicEm365 confirmed it.

Cryer told Rivals, “I picked Baylor because they’ve been recruiting me since the 8th grade,” he said. “I feel like we’ve built a great relationship and I’m glad to be a part of their family.”

Tons of top schools offered Cryer. LSU, Purdue, Houston, Oklahoma and Texas A&M, along with a host of other programs offered Cryer a scholarship.

The Bears figure to have Cryer play immediately. Even with Jared Butler and Davion Mitchell as underclassmen, Cryer is talented enough to play off the ball his freshman year.

This is a giant addition for the Bears. Cryer is a proven scorer and one of Baylor’s best high school point guard recruits ever.
