Baylor continued to receive good news in 2017, as former 4-star recruit James Lokchart announced his intentions to transfer from Texas A&M to Baylor.
Lockhart is a former 4-star recruit, signing with Texas A&M in 2014. The Ennis High School star chose the Aggies over Baylor at the time. A national level recruit, Lockhart had offers from pretty much everyone, including Alabama, Florida State, Ohio State, Notre Dame, and Texas.
After two years at Texas A&M, Lockhart announced he would be transferring on December 13th. Over his two-year career in college station, Lockhart played in 8 games, totalling 12 tackles as a reserve defensive end behind Myles Garrett and Daeshon Hall.
The former teammate of Baylor running back Terence Williams at Ennis, Lockhart will have to sit out the 2017 season, but will have two years of eligibility remaining. He is the second Power-5 conference player to announce a transfer to Baylor this week, joining graduate transfer Quarterback Anu Solomon.
Baylor currently has 8 commits for the 2017 class, and are expected to continue to look for transfers to rebuild their depth after losing half of the 2016 signing class.
