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.

UPDATES:

2016 Recruiting:


DE: McTelvin Agim (9/5): Committed to Arkansas. Not too surprising, but Baylor did have a chance at the 4-star defensive end. Losing out on him sucks, but it shows that Baylor is getting elite defensive talent to at the very least consider Baylor.

CB: Obi Eboh (9/5): Committed to the University of Texas today. CBs were surging for Texas lately so it doesn't come as a big surprise.
DT: Chris Daniels (9/6): Released his top five and Baylor did not make the cut. Not too surprising, but he would have been a big get for Bennett and Co.


DT/DE: Andrew Fitzgerald (9/14): No idea how I missed this, but the 3-star DT/DE out of Flower Mound, Texas named Baylor into his top 5, along with SMU, Vanderbilt, UNC, and Oregon. Crystal Ball predictions are outdated, so I won't include those.

WR: Devin Duvernay and CB: Donovan Duvernay (9/15): 247 Sports posted an article($) about the brothers' upcoming decision. Looks like they will take another visit and then decide. Both are Baylor leans on the Crystal Ball.

CB: Donovan Duvernay (9/16): Tweeted out that he will be committing soon. Good sign for the Bears, who are at 100% on 247 Sports' Crystal Ball for the 3-star athlete out of Sachse. The majority opinion is that where Donovan goes, his twin brother, 4-star WR Devin, will also go.

CB: Donovan Duvernay (9/21): COMMITTED TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!! The 3-star CB out of Sachse adds another talent to the deep secondary class of 2016. This bodes well for Baylor's chances with Duvernay's twin brother, Devin: the top WR in Texas according to 247 Sports' Composite Rankings!

DE: Micheal Johnson (9/22): Baylor reeled in another commit, as the 3-star defensive end out of Missouri City, Texas gave his pledge to the Bears. To say this came out of left field is an understatement. Big get for Bennett and co.

DE: Isaiah Chambers (9/25): Committed to TCU. No real surprise there. Would have been a big-time player for Bennett.

2017 Recruiting:

So Jhamon Ausbon tweeted this out today (9/1). Pretty cool.

OG: Tyrese Robinson (9/2): Talked with Scout about him playing tackle, and he mentions that he is looking at Baylor, OU, and UT specifically.

S: Robert Barnes (9/7): Committed to Oklahoma. Would have been a great addition to the #17SuperTeam.

2018 Recruiting:

OT Darrell Simpson (9/15): Offered on the 13th, Simpson is a offensive lineman for Justin Northwest, a school in a suburb of Denton.
