Baylor MBB Recruiting

Baylor MBB Recruiting: 2014 Notes (Updated 10/14)

To date, there hasn't been much positive information to share about Baylor's 2014 MBB recruiting class, because there isn't one. Baylor doesn't have a commitment yet for the class, and the natives are getting restless.

Baylor makes the cut to 11 for 2014 SG Rashad Vaughn

Vaughn is one of the fifteen best players in the 2014 class. Normally, a cut to 11 wouldn't be that big of a deal, and it isn't really now, either.

The Weekend of Reckoning for Baylor MBB

The way things are shaping up, the weekend of August 30, 2013 could be one of the most important in the history of Baylor Basketball. 3 top-10 recruits will be on campus that weekend, so let's hope we put on a show.

The Roster Game Ridiculous: Dominic Woodson out

Ten days ago, Baylor had a roster with one too many players, at least two of whom had uncertain futures, and needed space for one, perhaps two transfers this summer. Now all that is gone. The college roster game ridiculous.

Rumor: Baylor hosts 2013 PG Darren Williams

Having missed out on JUCO SG Desmond Lee and facing at least one likely departure in the face, Baylor's men's basketball team is keeping its options open, reportedly bringing North Carolina PG Darren "Hot" Williams in for a visit today.

JUCO SG Desmond Lee chooses NC State

This particular miss for Baylor MBB recruiting leaves Baylor probably looking to the D1 transfer ranks with a scholarship in-hand and a major hole at the SG position.
