With just days remaining in the 2015 recruiting cycle and little intrigue left with our class, Baylor casts its eyes toward 2016.

2015 Wish List:

2016 Wish List:

This thread marks the first real attempt at a 2016 Wish List based off our offer list and other information. With an upcoming senior class of 19 and a couple of juniors who might decide to make the jump, we could get close to a full class again.  As of now, I'm projecting a class heavy on OL and DL considering our needs, and the Wish List will skew towards the defense for a while since we already have 4 offensive commits, including a QB, RB, LT, and #1 WR.

WR: Devin Duvernay (10% BU)
WR: Jeremy Smith (33% BU)
OL: J.P. Urquidez (46% BU)
OL: Robert Kraeling
OT: Anthonie Thomas
ATH: Tristen Wallace

DT: Kendell Jones
DT: Michael Williams
DE: Isaiah Chambers
DE: McTelvin Agim
DE/LB: Erick Fowler
LB: Deonte Williams
LB:
Dontavious Jackson
NB
: Innis Gaines
CB:
Donovan Duvernay
CB
: Obi Eboh
CB: Raleigh Texada
S: Eric Monroe
S: Eric Cuffee

As always, this is a work-in-progress and will take shape over the coming months.

UPDATES:

2015 Recruiting:

OT Riley Daniel (2/2): Oklahoma State offered today.

DE Tyrone Hunt (1/31): Committed this weekend officially as #19 in Baylor's 2015 class.

CB Henry Black (1/30): Commits! Listed at 6-1, 184 pounds, Black chose the Bears over Texas Tech in the end.

2016 Recruiting:

S Chanse Sylvie (2/16): Offered today.

S Eric Monroe (2/16): That would be huge.

WR Tren'Davian Dickson (2/10): Decommitted today.  Big blow to Baylor's 2016 class, but it's early.

LB Dontavious Jackson (2/2): Offered tonight after visiting this weekend.  There was a rumor that he committed, but he DID NOT.

DT Jordan Elliott (1/31): Committed!

2017 Recruiting:

S Eric Cuffee (2/3): We offered our once-commit today.

RB Toneil Carter (1/31): We offered at some point in the last week.

QB Tate Martell (1/30): Enjoyed himself at Baylor Friday.

WR Hezekiah Jones (1/27): We offered today.

RECRUITING THOUGHTS:

2015 Class:

Done.  Barring some crazy surprise, 19 is where we end.

Changelog:

2/2/2015: Created February Recruiting Thread
2/10/2015: Dickson decommits.

Call to Action:

ODBers-- by this point, it's become patently obvious that the biggest victim, content-wise, in ODB's rise in other areas has been this monthly recruiting thread, one of the staples of our lineup that I know a ton of people enjoy thoroughly.

I want to make this right and get the Recruiting Threads back on track, but I can't do it alone. If you've ever wanted to contribute to ODB but didn't think you had time, now is your chance to help. Here's what I need:

If you see any recruiting information of any kind, whether it's on Twitter or elsewhere, link/embed it in the comments if you don't see me get to it. That includes tweets of mine that somehow don't make the thread; the purpose here is to isolate and report everything we can find about Baylor Football recruiting. I'm talking visit rumors, offers, guys that may be opening things back up that we might want, whatever. If it's about recruiting and you see it, post it here unless it's already been posted.

I don't intend for this to be some huge undertaking for the common man or for anyone to go out of their way. Rather, my hope is that through crowdsourcing, we can take advantage of the numerous sets of eyes we have on social media and otherwise to get as much information into these threads as possible.

Thanks,
Mark Seymour
