Head coach Scott Drew announced a late addition to Baylor's 2012 incoming class on Tuesday.

Heading to Waco next fall will be 6-foot-7 small forward Taurean Waller-Prince (San Antonio, Texas/Earl Warren). Waller-Prince was recently released from the letter of intent he signed with Long Island University following the coaching change there.

"Taurean is a late-blooming talent that really tookd off his senior season," Drew said. "He continues to improve each year and we're excited to have him as part of the Baylor family."

Waller-Prince averaged 21.4 points and 11.2 rebounds as a senior. He will join the Bears fifth ranked class on ESPN.com which features Isaiah Austin (Arlington, Texas/Grace Prep), Ricardo Gathers (LaPlace, La./Riverside Academy), L.J. Rose (Houston, Texas/Westbury Christian) and Chad Rykhoek (Fort Worth, Texas/Fort Worth Christian).
