Baylor Gains Pledge From JUCO RB

The Baylor Bears added speed to their incoming class with the addition of a junior college all purpose back. Come inside to see who it is and what he had to say about playing for Coach Art Briles.

"The facilities just blew me away," says Baylor's newest commit, junior college running back Isaac Williams.

Williams, an all purpose back with blazing 4.39 speed, will have two years to play two years at Baylor, after redshirting last season. The talented speedster holds offers from Baylor, Washington State, Memphis, and Nevada, but has decided to end his recruitment and play for the Baylor Bears.

"The Baylor coaching staff is probably the best coaching staff I have ever been in front of. I will have a chance to compete for serious playing time right away, and I will be able to be able to return kicks. Plus, Baylor is a private school, so I will get a great education."

At 6'0" and 193 pounds, Williams admits that his weight must get up to close to 205, but says Baylor's strength and conditioning coach, Kaz Kazadi, should be able to help him reach his goal. Additionally, playing with Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III was a factor into his decision.

"In my research, he [Robert Griffin III] is a guy who is going to be a Heisman candidate in a year or two, so it means a lot to play with a guy like that."

Williams plans on enrolling at Baylor and begin classes in January 2010.
