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.
LB Dontavious Jackson (7/26): I missed this, but Jackson released a top 12 of schools, and Baylor was not included on it.
TE Issac Nauta (7/31): Baylor offered the recent FSU decommit. Nauta is the #1 TE for the class of 2016 currently.
Just received and offer from the University of Illinois #FightingIllini— Donovan Duvernay (@DDuvernay28) August 4, 2015
CB Parrish Cobb (8/9): Committed to Oklahoma.
DE: Brandon Bowen (8/18): Announced that Baylor is leading right now. The composite 4-star out of Trophy Club, Texas(suburb of the DFW metroplex) could play defensive end or receiver in college. Baylor is recruiting him to play DE.
Huge news here. Too target at DE for Bears. https://t.co/pWWGuHIO2D— BearsIllustrated.com (@baylorscout) August 18, 2015
WDE: Mat Boesen (8/21): Committed to TCU. Not a shock, but Baylor had a decent chance at getting the transfer from Long Beach City College.
S Brandon Jones (8/22): The 5-star safety out of Nacogdoches announced his top six programs. Baylor was included along with LSU, Alabama, Oregon, A&M, and UT.
My Top 6! Thank you for all the support thus far and all the programs that have given me this opportunity. #NoOrder pic.twitter.com/ZwmK8A6dRt— Brandon Jones (@BlessedJones33) August 22, 2015
DE: McTelvin Agim (8/29): Announced he will commit at his family reunion on September 5th. Baylor is in the top four for the 4-star DE out of Hope, Arkansas. Arkansas currently leads at 86% on the Crystal Ball predictions.
For everyone who is wanting to come out. Also, is a change in the time. New one is posted on the picture. pic.twitter.com/2C9s4J45Lz— McTelvin Agim (@So_Splash) August 29, 2015
NB Jalen Pitre (7/24): The Athlete out of Stafford, Texas committed today! Baylor is the first program to offer the 3-star ATH who will likely play the "Bear" position (like Ahmad Dixon, Sam Holl, and Collin Brence) for the Bears. If his hometown sounds familiar, it's because fellow 2017 Bear Hezekiah Jones is one of his teammates.
WDE Robert Beal (7/31): Baylor apparently offered the 4-star defensive end out of Georgia. Currently, his CBs are all to Notre Dame. Bears Illustrated reported this first, by the way.
WDE K'Lavon Chaisson (8/3): Announced he will be visiting Baylor on August 7th.
Visiting Baylor August 7th . Hopefully I'll enjoy myself. ⚪️ #SicEm— ❗️❕❗️❕ (@WhosThatGuy4) August 3, 2015
