I know this list looks like it's just a bunch of the top recruits who have shown interest in Baylor, and that's exactly what it is. This list will change through the recruiting cycle. It's the list of recruits who could commit to Baylor and not make me surprised.

2016 Updates

OL Kellen Diesch (10/6): Decommitted from Arkansas. His decision came down to Arkansas or Baylor and he goes to the same high school as 2016 target Brandon Bowen so...

S: Eric Cuffee (10/14): Announced his top five and Baylor was not in it. Very surprising from the 4-star safety out of Waco... Aqua posted the tweet in the comments

OL Ashton Julious (10/27): Committed to Oklahoma. He committed on an official visit to Norman.

2017 Updates

SDE: Lagaryonn Carson (10/15): Sorry for the tardiness of this one, but Carson committed to Texas. A bit of a surprise, considering that his brother, Tra Carson, is a RB for Texas A&M.
