Baylor picks up No. 2 for 2014 class
By Damon Sayles
Baylor’s junior day proved to be a success. Any time you can get juniors to commit, it’s productive, and the Bears had two on Saturday.
For ESPN Watch List athlete Davion Hall (Texarkana, Texas/Liberty-Eylau), the overall opportunity proved to be too good to pass up. The 6-foot-3, 194-pound wide receiver/safety gave Baylor his verbal pledge during his junior-day visit to Waco, Texas, choosing the Bears over an offer from Texas State and interest from Texas A&M, Arkansas, Texas Tech, Missouri and other programs.
“I liked everything down there,” Hall said of his junior-day visit. “I liked the offense, and I feel it’s the best fit down there.”
Hall plays safety and receiver for Liberty-Eylau, and he earned all-state recognition as a defensive back, but he is being recruited by Baylor co-offensive coordinator Kendal Briles as a receiver. Hall’s team is a run-oriented unit, so most of his plays as a junior were made on the defensive side of the ball. Hall’s versatility earned him MVP honors in his district.
No matter the position, Hall said he’s ready to show the Baylor fans and the Big 12 faithful what he can do. He’s excited about being the second commitment of the class, and he’s looking forward to working alongside commit No. 1, running back Terence Williams (Ennis, Texas/Ennis).
“I feel pretty good about it,” Hall said. “I feel we can get up there and do some big things.”
