Baseball and softball host opponents from small Christian schools, football has a new commit, and yeah, that's pretty much it for today.

We love the tackles in this picture, but the next generation is on the way.

Baseball Hosts Incarnate Word

Ian McCaw seems to have developed some kind of soft spot for Incarnate Word, as they've shown up against the majority of Baylor's teams in the 2014-2015 academic year. The Cardinals come to Waco sporting a marginally worse record than the Bears at 11-23. The first pitch is at 6:30 p.m. It's the second meeting between the two schools; they played a two game series last season, both of which ended in Baylor victories.

Softball Hosts Houston Baptist

The more excellent representatives of Baylor's bat sport teams will take the field against Houston Baptist at Getterman Stadium at 6 p.m. Baylor lost two recent games to Louisiana-Lafayette but looks to rebound against the 10-23 Huskies, who have won just two games on the road.

JP Urquidez Commits

2016 offensive lineman JP Urquidez of Copperas Cove (notable as the home of Robert Griffin III) committed to Baylor yesterday morning over Texas, Oklahoma, Miami, and UCLA. Urquidez joins Patrick Hudson as the second offensive lineman in the class and the two project as arguably the best pair of tackles in the nation to declare for a single school thus far. Urquidez says he is solid in his commitment and wants to help bring new recruits into the fold.

While a solid three inches of Urquidez's height come from his spectacular hair, he's still a massive mauler of a player and is a huge get for the Briles offense. He said that he knew he wanted to go to Baylor a while back but sat on it for three months to make sure he'd made the right decision. If there's a correct way to deal with the process, that's it. Welcome to the family, JP!

This is a real bear in a real soccer jersey on a real soccer field with real soccer players. It's real.
