Football players are flocking to Waco in bunches.
Baylor gained two more football commitments for the Class of 2014 on Sunday, bringing the Bears’ total to 17, including three in the past three days.
The Bears added pledges from quarterback Jourdan Blake of Princeton, and from defensive end Ira Lewis from Houston Lamar.
Lewis (6-3, 245) originally committed to Houston, but switched to Baylor on Sunday. He’s the second such player to spurn the Cougars for the Bears, along with Magnolia West defensive end Xavier Jones.
“I’ve always liked Baylor, especially with what they have academically,” Lewis told Rivals.com. “I want to be a pharmacist, so to have a degree from them … that’ s a great thing.”
Lewis made 12 sacks for Lamar last year in its run to the Class 5A Division I state final.
Blake, meanwhile, is a three-star quarterback by Rivals.com and the son of former Oklahoma head coach John Blake. A dual-threat QB, he passed for 1,933 yards and 17 touchdowns and ran for another 1,046 and 10 TDs as a junior.
Blake chose the Bears over offers from Oklahoma State, Tulsa, Illinois and Arizona State.
