2001 Recruiting Class Roster

As expected, when this year's class of newcomers reported to Waco, heights and weights are not always the same as they were in February. There are also a late additions in Colin Allred, a linebacker who transferred from Air Force. There are not any dramatic changes, a few lighter and a few heavier. Still, this class looks great on paper and in person.

The most notable changes appear on the stats of two lineman. Offensive lineman Glen Oskin from Houston Second Baptist reported at 279 pounds as opposed to the 300 listed on the original roster. The reason for this is simple. Since signing with Baylor in February, Glen has been working feverishly to get into shape before the start of two-a-days.

The coaches are very pleased with his fitness level and expect him to put 10 to 20 pounds back on over the next year. This would put Glen is prime position to fight for the starting job at center in 2002.

The other notable weight loss was to defensive lineman Eric Jackson from Denison. His February weight of 280 has given way to a leaner, more agile weight of 258. There has been much discussion around the practice fields about whether Jackson will play end or tackle. Only time will tell.
