Tuesday night, word began emerging from the Baylor coaching staff about an imminent commitment and a new member of the 2017 class. Thursday afternoon, that recruit made it public as 3-star defensive end Chidi Ogbonnaya flipped his commitment from Houston to Baylor.
The 15th best defensive end in the state, Ogbonnaya has been committed to Houston since June 24th, 2016. He chose the Cougars over offers from Kansas, Iowa State, UCF, and New Mexico State. At 6-foot-5, 245 pounds, Ogbonnaya has good size at defensive end. Baylor and Kansas State both offered before Christmas.
