Baylor Lands 2020 Top 50 Forward Dain Dainja

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-Second Round-Baylor vs Gonzaga Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

Baylor basketball added a top 50 recruit in the 2020 class by securing a commitment from Dain Dainja on Saturday night.

Dainja is a 6-foot-9 forward from Minnesota. He’s ranked No. 41 by 247, No. 45 by Rivals and No. 50 by 247. All have him as a 4-star prospect.

Dainja had offers from a ton of big programs, including Ohio State, Texas, Syracuse, Arizona State and Clemson.

This is Baylor’s second commitment in the 2020 class. The Bears already have L.J. Cryer, the No. 41 prospect on ESPN.

Baylor currently has the No. 2 class for the 2020 period. The Bears will likely have at least one more scholarship to give in this class. Baylor has 13 scholarships for next season, and Freddie Gillespie and Devonte Bandoo will graduate before the 2020-2021 season. With Cryer and Dainja on board, Baylor has 13 guys slotted for their scholarships for that season. But with transfers and a chance someone goes pro early, Baylor’s likely to have at least one scholarship come open. And with the Bears targeting several other top 100 prospects, this should be Baylor basketball’s best recruiting class since at least 2013.
