JUCO DB Chooses Baylor

The Baylor Bears got good news in the form of a commitment from a very talented JUCO DB. Find out what the newest addition to the Baylor Bears had to say about his decision to play for the green and gold only inside at BearsIllustrated.com.

College of the Sequoias defensive back K.J. (Kenny) Morton will sign his letter of intent on Wednesday to play for the Baylor Bears. Morton, a 5-foot-11, 180 pound defensive back is taking his talents to the Big 12 and will have 3 years to play.

"It felt like home," Morton said of Baylor University. "I liked the facilities, I hit it off with the coaches real well, I liked the atmosphere, and I think it will help me reach my goals on the next level."

Morton explains that current Baylor Bears defensive back, Prince Kent, did a good job in making Morton feel comfortable on his visit. Both Kent and Morton are originally from the state of Georgia.

Morton, who sports a 4.39 forty, played both the cornerback and safety positions at College of the Sequoias. Morton explained he has the ability to do both, and has had success doing both.

"I think I can bring a certain kind of leadership to the team because I can play anywhere in the secondary. I can play corner, and I can play safety," said Morton. "I just really feel like I can help the team."
