At 6-foot-8, Black has all the athleticism any coach could ever want and a motor that matches any player's in the country. He had a great summer running with Team Thad on the AAU circuit, and he translated that into numerous offers.
"He loved Baylor for a long time," said Black's AAU coach Norton Hurd who confirmed the news.
"Baylor really put the full court press on him recently," said Hurd. "They did a good job of talking to his family as well as his coaches."
The No. 21 player in the country is the first commitment for the Bears in the 2014 class, and is someone who should be an immediate impact player for Baylor.
