After another successful month of recruiting, the Baylor Bears are nearly full going into the first month of the 2013 season. Where do we go from here? I'm glad you asked.

Baylor makes the final 5 for WR KD Cannon

No surprises here to see Baylor in the final list, but Texas A&M and Texas not making it is a bit surprising. I will clean up these posts later tonight. I'm on the road.

July 2013 Recruiting Review

After a month in June in which the Bears brought in 7 verbal commitments for the 2014 class, and with shrinking space available, we knew July would probably be pretty slow. Still, two more future Bears joined the ranks of our recruiting class.

A New Potential QB Recruit?

The ongoing recruitment of the next record-breaking QB under Art Briles may (key word: may) be taking a new direction entirely, as a prospect committed to a marquee ACC school lets our staff know of his interest.

#21 for 2014 is DE Josh Malin!

Art Briles and his staff scored another big commitment today from Josh Malin of Steele HS in Schertz, Texas. Though his ranking is not commensurate with his offer sheet, Baylor got another quality defensive lineman for the 2014 class.

Baylor snags commit #20 in JUCO Jarell Broxton

Since Art Briles took over Baylor's program, the offensive line, perhaps more than any other position unit, has improved tremendously. That's part good recruiting, part good development. And our 2014 class took another step tonight.

July 2013 Recruiting Notes (UPDATED 7/31)

The Bears enter the last month with no college football on a high note in recruiting: in the last two months our class has grown from only 4 verbal commitments for 2014 to 19, with another on board for 2015, as well. It's a great time to be a Bear!

June 2013 Recruiting Review

Baylor entered the month on one of the greatest recruiting hot streaks in program history, racking up 8 commitments in May, and kept things going in June, pulling in 7 more. The Bears now have 19 commitments and a top-20 class by almost any measure.

Randall Cunningham and RC2 on-campus today!

Baylor's #1 target at QB is confirmed to be on-campus visiting today after arriving in Waco last night. All initial reports are that the visit is going extremely well.

Baylor gets its MLB in Rockdale's James David

On the other end of the fan excitement spectrum from Andrew Morris is probably James David, a highly-touted LB from Rockdale, Texas who became Baylor's 19th commitment late last night. Baylor now has 15 commitments in the last 6 weeks.

DT Andrew Morris is Baylor's 18th commit for 2014

This whole "poaching DL recruits from Houston schools" thing is really getting out of control. But Baylor found a way to continue the recruiting momentum in a big way yesterday, pulling massive Mesquite DT Andrew Morris.

Princeton ATH Jourdan Blake is #17 for 2014

Art Briles loves taking high school QBs and playing them elsewhere, and Jourdan Blake, son of former OU coach John Blake, is no different. Princeton's QB will probably play in the secondary for the Bears, and is the 17th commitment for 2014.

Baylor flips DT Ira Lewis from Houston for #16

Art Briles and his staff kept the recruiting momentum going today in a big way, securing commitments from two more recruits at the camp in Waco, Texas. The first is Houston Lamar DT Ira Lewis, who was previously committed to the Houston Cougars.

4* T'Kevian Rockwell is #15 for 2014!

Baylor gained the long-awaited pledge of Wylie, TX defender T'Kevian Rockwell last night at our skills camp in Dallas. He is the third-highest ranked commit in the 2014 class.

June 2013 Recruiting Notes (UPDATED 6/30)

With the summer camps beginning and recruiting season in full swing, Baylor now has 19 (!!) verbal commitments for the 2014 class and is adding more every day. Art Briles and his staff have a ton of momentum behind them going into the summer.

DB Chad Adams is #14 for 2014

Baylor held its first on-campus camp of the 2013 summer recruiting season today to great effect; DB Chad Adams gave his pledge to Art Briles and his staff, becoming the 3rd commitment in three days and the 14th overall for Baylor Football.

Blake Blackmar is lucky #13 for Baylor Football

Baylor's OL trio for 2014 became a quartet today with Clear Lake's Blake Blackmar coming into the fold. We now have a baker's dozen of commitments for the 2014 class as a whole, with nine coming in the last 30 days.

S Cordell Dorsey gives Baylor a dozen

I didn't expect to get any good news today on the recruiting front, but a watched pot never boils, it seems. Abilene OLB/S Cordell Dorsey made the call for the Bears on twitter, giving us a dozen commitments in the 2014 class.

Jordan Feuerbacher enrolling in January

He's one of at least 3 members of this class looking to enroll early. With the departures of Jordan Najvar and Jerod Monk, I guarantee you Feuerbacher gets playing time next season.

Baylor in double digits for 2014 commits

I stepped out for a bit this evening, so of course big news broke. Baylor welcomed its' 10th and 11th commitments for 2014 about 4 minutes apart this evening from Waco Midway LB Jamie Jacobs and Coppell TE Blake Mahon.

The Next Great Baylor QB Will Be ... (UPDATE: 6/3)

To date, Baylor has offered 4 QB prospects for the 2014 class, one of whom is already committed to the Texas Longhorns. Of the three remaining, who do we want the most?

#9 for 2014 is WR Ishmael Zamora

9 days ago, a lanky WR from Alief Elsik won gold at the Texas state track meet in the 110 meter hurdles, posting a time of 13.70 seconds. His name is Ishmael Zamora, and tonight he became Baylor's 9th commit of the 2014 class.

OT Patrick Lawrence commits to Baylor

Baylor fans got another bit of welcome news yesterday with the commitment of Waxahachie OT Patrick Lawrence, our first true OT in the 2014 class. He was on campus, liked what he saw, and pulled the trigger for Art Briles and company.

Baylor swings a 2014 switch at DE

Baylor's seventh commit is in the books, and this time, finally, it's on the defensive side of the ball. We expected offense to be a heavy focus in this class, but where's the D, guys? Hopefully Mr. Jones is just the beginning.

TE Jordan Feuerbacher is #6 for 2014

Consumers typically look for three things when they look at sources for news: they want it quick, they want it cheap, and they want it accurate. You don't pay me anything, anyway, so I'm going to try to bat 2/3 on the news of Baylor's sixth commit.

May 2013 Recruiting Notes (UPDATED 5/30)

At the beginning of the month of May, Baylor stands at 5 commitments for the 2014 class. Word is we should expect more any day. This is the running thread for updates through May as camps begin and school years begin to end.

Commit #5 is OT Josh Pelzel

Baylor's Scout and Rivals boards are reporting now that the Bears reeled in commitment #5 for the 2014 class today in Rockdale OT Josh Pelzel. Given the relatively down year for OL prospects in Texas, securing the first OT in this class is huge.
