Chad President Official
#254 known to the world - Temple QB Chad President is officially a part of the Baylor Bear family! #Reality— Coach Art Briles (@CoachArtBriles) August 13, 2014
Chad President signed a financial aid agreement with Baylor University, which officializes his commitment to play for Baylor and allows coaches and athletic personnel to reference him by name on social media and in other official capacities.
Briles: "We're extremely excited that Chad (President) has chosen to play here because he's a great athlete and a great person."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) August 13, 2014
Briles: "He's going to be a great addition to Baylor University, but first and foremost he's got a big senior football season at Temple HS."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) August 13, 2014
The 4* QB from Temple was the first(?) commitment in the 2015 class and has been a steady and enthusiastic member of the class from the very beginning. He should play quarterback for Baylor, but is versatile enough to play receiver as well.
Note: If you're on twitter, give Craig Smoak a follow. His coverage of camp has been amazing so far.
Position Battle: Left Guard
LaQuan McGowan and Blake Muir have been fighting for the LG spot since the spring, and a decision should be made in the next few practices. Right now, both seem to be producing quite well, making this particular particular question mark a very good one to have.
Briles: "LaQuan (McGowan) is a freak of nature. It's 2034 with him. He's a guy that just doesn't exist anywhere."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) August 13, 2014
Briles: "Blake (Muir) is unbelievably productive and at the end of the day it's all about being productive."— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) August 13, 2014
The decision will be made in 8-10 practices. We have a mountain and an Aussie. I like it.
Johnny Jefferson expected out 7 to 10 days with knee straun.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) August 13, 2014
Corey Coleman and Jay Lee are still day-to-day with minor hamstring injuries, but will be 100% for SMU.
This could be a great matchup to watch in the next few years.
Coach Kaz Hates Ice
Kaz Kazadi took part in the ALS Ice Challenge yesterday, linked in the tweet below. He hates ice. He also challenged the President of the United States. After the trauma Kaz experienced, I hope he gets his wish.

S/O to DarthBear
ODB commentator DarthBear recently kicked off a sports podcast with one of his friends, and he had me on as a guest for his Big 12 Preview episode last night. He and his co-host were a ton of fun and I look forward to the episode going up in the near future. Thanks for including ODB in your endeavors!
