UPDATES:

2016 Recruiting:

S Chris Miller (4/24): Committed!

OL J.P. Urquidez (4/13): Committed to Baylor. Here's ODB's story on the commitment. After the loss of Jordan Elliott, this is some welcome news for the 2016 class, especially given the apparent enthusiasm Urquidez has for his future school. Couple this commitment with Patrick Hudson, and the OL of the future certainly looks to be in great shape.

DT Jordan Elliott (4/6): Decommitted tonight.  He was Baylor's highest-ranked 2016 recruit so far and is now our second decommit after WR Tren'Davian Dickson.  People will say that his offer list just grew too big for Baylor to keep him, but it's more likely who offered him than how many.  Expect USC to be a big player here.

DT Bravvion Roy (4/6): Named Baylor a leader to Scout along with Missouri.

RB Kameron Martin (4/6): Tweeted the following after Elliott decommitted:

2017 Recruiting:

No updates yet.

RECRUITING THOUGHTS:

Changelog:

4/24/2015: Chris Miller commits!

4/15/2015 (pbp): Updated Commitment list, national rank, etc. in the wake of the J.P. Urquidez commitment.

4/6/2015: Created April Thread.

Mea Culpa:

My apologies to all for letting the March Thread fall into disuse and for delaying April until I had naught but bad news to report.  I promise that April will be a much more active month here, and hopefully we'll get some good news along with it.
