With Robert Griffin III's Heisman Trophy winning season still fresh in everyone's mind, Baylor football is on pace for one of their most highly-touted recruiting classes under fourth-year coach Art Briles.
The Bears made waves Monday when they received a verbal commitment from four-star WR Vequan Jones, a 6'4 200 with 4.4 40 speed.
But while Jones' commitment will certainly help Baylor's recruiting momentum, the other four players already in their 2013 recruiting cycle were all three-star recruits as well:
Trayvon Blanchard is a 6'2 185 LB with elite speed (4.42 40) from Orange, Texas. At the next level, he will need to either put on weight or be moved to the secondary.
Here's a highlight tape from his junior season, courtesy of 24/7 Sports:
Johnny Jefferson is a 5'10 195 RB from Killeen, Texas with game-breaking speed (4.45 40).
On a side note, the lyrics for the rap music in this highlight video from his sophomore season are particularly unimaginative:
The Bears also received commitments from K.J Smith, a 6'4 240 defensive end from Frisco Centennial High School in suburban Dallas and Chris Johnson, a 6'5 195 dual-threat QB from Bryan, Texas.
