2015 Wish List:

QB: Jarrett Stidham (75% Texas Tech)
RB (speed): Ronald Jones, Jr. (62% Baylor)
RB (big back): Chris Warren (62% Baylor) | Soso Jamobo (70% UT)
WR (inside): Ja'Mycal Hasty (72% Baylor)
WR (inside): Ryan Newsome (33% Baylor)

OT: Maurice Porter (100% Baylor)

DE: James Lockhart (100% Baylor)
DT: Darrion Daniels (100% Baylor)

NB: Richard Moore (100% Baylor)
CB: Kris Boyd (54% A&M) | Holton Hill (100% A&M)
S: Kahlil Haughton (100% Baylor)

All of the players above hold Baylor offers and have indicated at least some interest in the Bears such that their inclusion is not simply the result of wishful thinking.  This list has just 12 slots on it for a couple of reasons: 1) Our 2015 class will likely be very small and has 4 members already, and 2) we won't know much about 2015 until after the start of junior days and the end of the 2014 cycle.

Players Removed (who did not commit to us): S Larry Pryor (A&M)
