Beau Blackshear holds offers from several schools. On Wednesday, Blackshear decided to end his recruitment and give a verbal pledge to the Baylor Bears.
Blackshear, a 6'4" 230 pound defensive end prospect is a 3-Star recruit that ranks as the nation's 81st best defensive end in the country. Scout.com evaluates Blackshear as:
'Great frame that could work inside or outside on the defensive line depending on how much more he grows. Plays all up and down the line for his team. Very quick off the snap with great explosion that drives the line of scrimmage backwards. He demands double teams, he has not learned how to beat those yet. On the outside he has solid quickness, but it is not top tier, his quickness on the inside is top tier.'
This is Baylor's 7th commitment of the season.
