After so many recruiting defections, Baylor football finally has an addition again.
Clear Creek defensive back Noah Daniels became Baylor’s first commitment since the firing of Art Briles as head football coach, as he made his announcement Wednesday on Twitter.
“First off, I want to say thank you to every school that has offered me a scholarship to play football and further my education at their university,” Daniels said. “But unfortunately I can only go to one school. That being said, after a lot of thought and consideration, I have decided to further my education and football career at Baylor University.”
Daniels (6-0, 180), who ran 4.51 in the 40-yard dash in April, reportedly picked up an offer at a Baylor camp last Friday. He is the second pledge in Baylor’s 2017 class, along with Stafford athlete Jalen Pitre.
Daniels had more than 20 offers, and chose Baylor over the likes of Texas Tech, Arkansas, Houston, Illinois, Indiana and Utah.
Following Briles’ dismissal as head coach, Baylor lost half of its 2016 signing class and all of its 2017 pledges except Pitre, who made his commitment in July 2015.
