At today's 2012 U.S. Army All-American Bowl the Baylor Bears picked up a commitment from linebacker Brian Nance out of Trinity High School from Euless, Texas. Nance made his commitment live on NBC earlier today and picked Baylor over the Arkansas Razorbacks.
Nance comes in at 6-feet-3-inches and weighs 215 pounds and is rate at four stars by most recruiting services. Rivals has Nance rated as the No. 9 linebacker in the country and the 140th overall rated player.
Nance suffered a torn ACL in the off season of his junior year so his stats as a senior did not compare to that junior year:
Nance posted 67 tackles (seven for loss), two interceptions and five sacks in eight games this year after dealing with an ACL tear he suffered in the offseason.
He recorded 160 tackles (20 for loss), six interceptions and 13 sacks during his junior year, leading the Trojans to the state title game.
