Baylor flips College Station Cornerback Timarcus Davis

Baylor received their 3rd commitment of the 2017 class as Timarcus Davis flips his commitment from Houston to Baylor.

The last day of the 2016 year brought happy news to the Baylor Bears football program, as they received a late Christmas gift. College Station corner back Timarcus Davis committed to the Baylor Bears, flipping from the Houston Cougars, who he committed to in June.

Davis has offers from Arizona, Arkansas, Iowa State, Oklahoma State, Purdue, and Utah. The two-way high school star is expected to play corner at the college level. Davis was listed as a potential defensive target by Gabe Brooks when the new Baylor staff was brought on

  • Another longtime Houston pledge, cornerback Timarcus Davis is somewhat similar to Davis in that he looks and plays bigger than his listed size. Davis is also an outstanding elite with a laser-timed 40 in the low 4.6's, but elite numbers in the pro agility -- a blistering 3.95 seconds -- and the vertical -- an eye-popping 45.8 inches. Davis is also a high-production corner who picked off seven passes and recorded almost 80 tackles as a junior.

Davis is an athletic player with tremendous quickness and leaping ability.  He is the Bears first cornerback commitment, joining safeties Jalen Pitre and Trevon Lewis

Stay tuned for more on Davis and all Baylor recruiting as signing day approaches. 


One of the top combine testers in the country for the 2016 class, Timarcus Davis is an instinctive defensive back who is always around the ball. Recorded a respectable laser-timed 40 of 4.63 seconds, but excelled in the shuttle with a blistering 3.95, in addition to a jaw-dropping 45.8-inch vertical leap. High-production cornerback prospect who posted a seven-interception junior season. Great change-of-direction ability. Good burst breaking toward the ball. Satisfactory top-end speed. Good, wiry-strong frame, but needs to add bulk once he's playing in college. Possesses the length to add that weight. Experienced as a cover man and a safety and could be a position-versatile player in college. — Gabe Brooks
