Players removed (who did not commit to us):


2016 Recruiting:

DT Jordan Elliott (3/10): Got an offer from FSU today.  Everybody coming after the Baylor commit.

S Eric Monroe (3/10): The 5* 2016 has maintained that Baylor leads for his services, though few in the industry give us much of a chance to land him.  He did tweet this today, and there's some speculation that he might have been visiting campus:

CB Raleigh Texada (3/5): Committed!  He is the younger brother of TCU CB Ranthony Texada and has offers already from Baylor, Washington, Cal, and Duke.

S Kenan Ivy (3/3): Committed!

Baylor brought in a number of recruits for Sunday's practice, including Smith, Dickson, Elliott, Fowler, Cuffee, and more.

2017 Recruiting:

No updates yet.



3/2/2015: Created March Recruiting Thread.
3/3/2015: S Kenan Ivy commits!
3/5/2015: CB Raleigh Texada commits!

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.
