After a few months of negativity surrounding the Baylor football program, things got back to normal with the Bears Friday Night Lights camp. Baylor hosted about 100 kids on Friday for their only camp of the summer.
The camp had an obvious change in atmosphere and tone, as this was the first camp hosted by new Interim Head Coach Jim Grobe, but the message remained the same. The coaches were looking for kids that stood out and would make an impact at Baylor. The talent level may not have been on par as it was in the past, but there were some standouts at the camp and two of them received offers.
Jonke is a 3 star on the Scout.com network. He is a 6'0, 175 lb dual threat QB who plays at powerhouse Allen HS in North Texas. Jonke split time with Minnesota signee, Seth Green, to lead Allen to a 14-1 season and the Texas State 6A semifinals.
On the season, Jonke accounted for around 2600 totals yards, including 700 on the ground and 1900 through the air. He threw for 19 TDs and only 5 INTs and had 13 TDs on the ground.
Jonke had an opportunity to impress the Baylor coaches, especially with Baylor losing their lone QB commit of 2017. With the uncertainty of the 2017 class, Jonke did well to position himself for at least a look by the Baylor staff.
Dreshawn isn't a known prospect of the 2017 class, but with a little more exposure, he could be one to watch later in to the season.
Minnieweather showed well at the camp Friday, and showed good speed and footwork. He is a big back, at 6'0 and 205 lbs. Minnieweather rushed for over 1500 yds for North Mesquite HS last year, and is poised to have a bigger stake in the North Mesquite offensive game this year.
Minnieweather will be one to watch this season, as he is sure to gain more attention as the season goes on. He is currently receiving attention from SMU, Tulsa and UTSA.
Fontenot is a name that should be familiar to most Baylor fans. Fontenot's father played at Baylor. Fontenot is currently committed to Colorado, but showed up to work with the coaches and see if he could gain an offer from the Bears. Fontenot was a part of a State Championship at George Ranch HS.
Fontenot has great size, at 5'11 and 200+ lbs, and showed great footwork and speed. Fontenot has gotten a look from Baylor and continues to keep in touch with the Bears coaching staff. He is certainly on the radar for a possible offer and will be one to watch this season.
Sanogo was a big time prospect that made it to the camp on Friday. The Plano West HS standout was the headliner on the defensive side of the ball and received a lot of attention from Coach Gush.
Sanogo showed off great footwork and agility and showed why he is the #2 ILB on Scout.
The 4 star prospect is currently committed to the University of Houston, but with the Bears extending an offer to the talented LB, things may open up for them in the future. BearsIllustrated will continue to monitor that.
The Clear Creek prospect showed up and made a big impression the Bears coaching staff, garnering a big offer from the Bears. Daniels is an underrated prospect but considered one of the more skilled CBs in the state.
Currently, Baylor and SMU are the only in state offers for Daniels, but the Baylor offer was a big one for Daniels. Daniels showed great footwork and speed. Time will tell what happens with Baylor and Daniels, but he is certainly keeping tabs on the goings on in Waco.
