With Wednesday’s national signing day approaching, Baylor is putting the final touches on its 2015 recruiting class as it received a verbal commitment from Shreveport Woodlawn cornerback Henry Black on Friday.
Black is a 6-0, 176-pound senior who collected 53 tackles, five interceptions and 19 pass breakups during the fall.
“It was his duty to cover each team’s best receiver, and he did a fantastic job,” Woodlawn coach Jerwin Wilson said. “He’s athletic and physical and has great hips, and definitely improved over the year. He’s a legitimate 4.5 guy (in the 40-yard dash), and has worked his tail off to get where he’s at.”
Wilson said Baylor has recruited Black for three years, and he chose the Bears over Texas Tech and Arkansas. Black visited Baylor last weekend.
“He’s gone to their camps and has been around their facilities, which are some of the best and getting better every day,” Wilson said. “He knows he’s going to be coached hard, and that’s what he’s used to.
Baylor has 18 commitments in its 2015 class. Arp defensive end Tyrone Hunt is visiting Baylor this weekend after recently de-committing from UTSA.
