Baylor Football Recruiting 2013
Collection of the stories about Baylor's 2013 football recruiting class.
Baylor's 247Sports site BearsTruth.com is reporting that JUCO OL Tyler Edwards, who flipped his commitment from West Virginia to Baylor in November and then did not arrive at semester like expected, WILL enroll at Baylor this summer.
With a combined lift of 2010 lbs in the squat, bench, and deadlifts today, incoming Baylor DT Andrew Billings of Waco, Texas broke Mark Henry's longstanding record and became the second Texas high schooler ever to cross the 2000-lb. threshold.
In the 2013 class, Art Briles and company managed to continue the program's positive momentum with one of the best recruiting hauls in Baylor history. Strong at the top and throughout, this group looks poised to push Baylor to the top of the Big 12.
In just about twenty minutes, the annual press conference for Baylor's 2013 recruiting class will be aired live through BaylorBears.com. This is the first chance anyone will have to hear Briles talk in-person about our 2013 recruits.
Barring something crazy happening this afternoon, Baylor Football has its 2013 class intact and ready to go. Everyone expected to sign did so, and the class as a whole looks poised to continue the Bears' upward momentum for years to come.
On the eve of National Signing Day and barring something crazy happening in the next 24 hours, Baylor's 2013 recruiting class is complete. It is easily the best in the Art Briles Era and a huge step forward for Baylor Football.
After thinking it over a bit and visiting the campus officially this weekend, the other of Baylor's two potential commits today reaffirmed that he will be a Bear. That means Baylor went 2-for-2 today on impact prospects at a need position.
Tomorrow may be National Signing Day, the single most-important event in the growth and development of a program that doesn't happen on a field of play, but today might as well be mini-NSD. Baylor has a chance to improve tremendously. I'm hoping.
Needing offensive line help in the worst way after recent losses, Baylor made a splash this afternoon by flipping a commit from Texas Tech in OG Maurice Porter. Baylor now has both Missouri City HS guards in our 2013 recruiting class.
OG Dionte Savage and DT Terell Brooks are set to make their decisions known today at some point or another. Both fill tremendous needs for this Baylor class, if they come, and are critical components of the Bears 2013 roster.
I missed this when it happened a few minutes ago and am just now catching up-- according to A&M's 247Sports site, 4* Southlake QB Kenny Hill will stick with his A&M commitment and sign with the Aggies next week. Baylor will have to move on.
Remember that thread I had two days ago about Billings announcing on Monday? Well ... yeah. He's not. He's announcing Tuesday, and this time the news comes from Smoaky himself, the man who will carry the announcement live. Yay for Tuesday!
With just under a week left before National Signing Day in the 2013 season, it's time to look at Baylor's priorities for the remaining spots and where any new offers are likely to go. There's still quite a bit of talent out there.
We're nine short days away from National Signing Day in college football. With the countdown on and news breaking across the country about where prized prospects will commit, Dan Rubenstein takes a look at the landscape across the Big 12.
Phil Bennett's defense at Baylor sorely needs help up-front if it wants to continue improving in 2013, but that effort may have hit a bump in the road with the decommit of JUCO DT Terrell Brooks, who says he's still going to visit Waco this weekend.
Baylor has its starting RG for 2013 (probably) in an absolute mauler from Yuma CC in Arizona. Check back on this post later in the afternoon; I was literally on my way out the door and can't share much about him. Huge get for Baylor, though.
If the reports are true, Baylor lost its highest-ranked OL recruit today while he was on his official visit to Texas. Hammad is still scheduled to take another official this coming weekend to TCU, but I don't know if that will still happen.
Today was the first day JUCO players intending to enroll at semester were eligible to sign National Letters of Intent to the universities of their choice. Several schools, including Baylor, welcomed significant additions to their teams today.
