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 (11/8):

Committed to Texas A&M today. Was leaning towards Aggies on the 247 Sports' Crystal Ball Predictions.

"Good God...That's Tren'Davian Dickson's music!" Still unconfirmed by Briles so we'll wait and see if he is coming but this could be HUGE news.

WR: Tren'Davian Dickson (11/9): Proving that you can go home after all, Tren'Davian Dickson, or TD Dickson, decommitted from UT and committed to Baylor tonight. If you're not turnt, you will be. He set the national record for most TD catches in a single season last year with 39(don't quote me on the number.) This kid can flat-out play.

WR: Devin Duvernay (11/19): Devin announced via Colt Barber that he will announce his commitment tomorrow. Baylor leads for one of the top WRs in the nation.

WR: Devin Duvernay (11/20): What we've all been waiting for. 4* WR out of Sachse rounds out Baylor's class of 2016 WRs. Another stud. "All I can say is wow."


OG: Branton Autry (11/29): Committed! This came out of left field but he is the #1 JUCO OG (offensive guard, not original gangsta like me) in the class of 2016! This is a big commit! (Quite Literally)
