INSIDE THE BAYLOR BEARS' CLASS
Who they have: With 17 of its 19 commitments from within the state, Baylor has done a solid job of keeping some of the top talent at home. The Bears have five four-star players, including ESPN 150 receiver Robbie Rhodes and ESPN 300 quarterback Chris Johnson. Together these two athletes could make magic in a passing game that is built for a dual-threat quarterback and a go-to receiver. Speedy, three-star running back Johnny Jefferson could be a major contributor in the backfield, as well. Defensively, the Bears will add depth to the outside linebacker spot. Postgraduate Brian Nance and seniors Raaquan Davis and Travon Blanchard lead the charge of four-star outside linebackers.
Who they want: Baylor's hoping to land a local kid in four-star Andrew Billings, who also is an athletic, two-way standout on the line. Billings can play offensive guard or defensive tackle effectively, and Baylor has discussed the 6-2, 308-pound prospect on both sides of the ball. The Bears are hoping to keep Billings home, but he also has offers from Texas and TCU that are being heavily considered. Billings should be making a decision relatively soon.
