Baylor added more speed to its 2018 recruiting class as Crosby High School running back Craig Williams made a verbal commitment Friday night.
Williams is a three-star recruit by Rivals.com who chose Baylor over Arizona, Auburn, Colorado, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, Missouri, Houston, Minnesota and Utah among others.
The 5-10, 175-pound Williams has been clocked at 4.36 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He missed a big part of his junior season with an injury but is expected to have a strong senior year. He rushed for 357 yards and three touchdowns and made 10 catches for 102 yards and three more scores before his injury.
As a sophomore in 2015, Williams rushed for 985 yards and 12 touchdowns and caught 14 passes for 199 yards and a score. He also played on the Crosby varsity as a freshman as he rushed for 658 yards and nine touchdowns and made 21 catches for 305 yards and four scores.
The Bears now have 19 verbal commitments in their 2018 class. Williams was the second running back to commit to the Bears as he joins Pasadena Rayburn’s Stanley Hackett who made his commitment in May.
