Baylor Recruiting Roundup 5/28

BearsIllustrated checks in with a couple of 2015 and 2016 recruits, and also introduces you to a 2017 recruit that will be one to watch. Come inside as we discuss this and much, much more heading in to camp season.

With High School spring games winding down, several recruit prospects will now turn their attention to the camp season. This is the time that these prospects will be able to show coaches what they have and hopefully earn their dream offer. BearsIllustrated caught up with a couple of 2015 and 2016 recruits to get their plans for the summer, and also introduces you to Andrew Taylor, a 2017 prospect that could be one to watch in the coming years.

Broadnax Looking For A Baylor Offer

Joseph Broadnax has been a TCU commit for a few months now, but he has been open about the fact that he is keeping his options open. Baylor is one of the schools he is keeping an eye on. "Coach Gush and I are real cool. We talk almost every day." With the Bears limited on scholarship offers, and the Bears pursuing James Lockhart and Darrion Daniels, Broadnax may have to wait; however, with a great workout at the Lake Highlands camp, he may give the coaches no option but to offer.

Sachse Standouts Planning For Summer

Jared Mayden and Devin Duvernay have see their stock blow up this spring. It seems like the Sachse (TX) HS duo are getting offered daily. With the 2016 signing day less than 2 years away, Jared and Devin are still taking in everything, but admittedly are looking to narrow things down this summer. "I'm looking to release a Top 10 lists around June 5th. I will go to the camps of those Top 10 this summer," Mayden said. With Duvernay, he isn't quite in the same hurry as Jared is to narrow his list down, but the Bears will certainly be one of the schools that he camps with. "Yes I'm going to camps, but not exactly sure yet. Baylor will be one of them, though, which will be next Friday at Lake Highlands."

It is no secret that Baylor will be keying in on these two playmakers. Jared is being regarded as one of the top DBs in the country for 2016 and Duvernay is going to be a dangerous threat at WR. BearsIllustrated will follow up with both prospects after their visit to a Baylor camp.

Gary Planning To Travel Around The Country For Camps

Dallas (TX) Kimball HS DE Demerick Gary is somewhat of an unknown commodity in the recruiting world, but with a strong camp season, Gary could see his stock rise. Gary was having a strong season until a knee injury slowed him down towards the end. For the season, Gary totaled 60 tackles, 27 TFL, and 11 sacks. After having surgery to repair a knee injury, Gary was held out of spring practice, but has been fully cleared to participate in camps this summer. Needless to say, Gary will certainly have a chip on his shoulder to prove his worth during camp season.

On the recruiting front, Gary received his first offer from Stephen F. Austin. Aside from SFA, Gary is hearing from Colorado State, UTSA, TCU, Arkansas State, North Texas. Gary admits that he would love to hear from his dream school, Tennessee, but knows that he will have to work hard to earn their attention. Along with Tennessee, Gary is looking to camp at Baylor, Texas, LSU, FSU, USC, UCLA, UH, and New Mexico. That is a lot of travel for the summer, but Gary is looking to prove himself and earn more attention. BearsIllustrated will keep up with Gary throughout the summer circuit.

Andrew Taylor Is One To Watch For 2017

Being from a small town can sometimes be a disadvantage for great athletes, as they try to make a name for themselves in the recruiting world. However, attending combines and camps can help get your name out, and can draw attention to your hometown. This is the case for McGregor (TX) HS Sophomore-to-be Andrew Taylor. According to his father, David, Andrew was a standout at the NUC Combine in Plano, TX. "My son just attended a National Underclassmen combine in Plano and did very well. He was named by the position coach as one of the top 5 receivers." Standing 6'0, 170 lbs, Taylor will be looked upon to be the go to guy at WR, for McGregor. After playing behind a few seniors on offense, Taylor worked his way in to the starting lineup, culminating in a big game against a regional playoff foe. BearsIllustrated will continue to follow Taylor through the summer, but below is his video highlight from the NUC Combine.
