Baylor Football Recruiting Notes: February 2016

NSD at the beginning of the month, Valentine's Day in the middle. A leap year, meaning Briles and the coaching staff will have an extra day to #CROOT. God, I love high school football recruiting.

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.

2016 Updates:

S: Brandon Jones (1/24): Is announcing his top three schools soon. Baylor will get a visit from him 1/29.

DT: Dequinton Osborne (1/31): Committed to Baylor! Huge pickup. JUCO All-American Defensive Tackle. Read more about that here.

S: Brandon Jones (1/31): Seemed to enjoy his visit yesterday.

DT: Marcel Southall (2/1): Announced his final three. Baylor wasn't in it.

S: Brandon Jones (2/1): Announced his top three. To no surprise, it's Baylor, UT, and TAMU.

CB Parrish Cobb (2/2): Reportedly decommitted from OU today. Working to confirm that this is legit. If it is, then Baylor's got a great chance at keeping him in Waco.
UPDATE: It appears that Parrish Cobb will sign with Baylor on NSD!

2017 Updates

S:Grant Delpit (2/11): Received an offer from Baylor! 247 has him rated as a high 3-star.
