Baylor continued its recent recruiting hot streak as Silsbee receiver Kalon Barnes made a verbal commitment Thursday night.
Barnes’ commitment was Baylor’s sixth since last weekend and gives the Bears 11 in the 2018 class.
The 5-11, 172-pound Barnes is a three-star recruit who is one of the fastest players in the state as he’s been timed at 10.35 seconds in the 100 meters and 21.33 in the 200 meters.
As a junior last fall, he made 34 catches for 683 yards and eight touchdowns.
Barnes is the third receiver to commit to the Bears in the 2018 class as he joins Mansfield’s Jackson Gleeson and Miami Washington’s Tyquan Thornton.
