Baylor football picked up commitments from College Station cornerback Timarcus Davis and Lake Travis QB Charlie Brewer on Saturday.
Davis (5-11, 165) originally pledged to Houston in June. But he announced a change of heart via Twitter on Saturday.
“ ‘Why do we close our eyes when we pray? When we dream? Or when we kiss?’ ” Davis wrote. “ ‘Because we know the most beautiful things in life are not seen, but felt by the heart.’ I’m choosing to follow my heart and dreams. Using my mental as my guide. I have recently decommitted from the University of Houston, to follow my heart and commit to Baylor University, where I WILL receive my degree.”
Davis is ranked as a three-star prospect, as the No. 52 cornerback nationally by Scout and the No. 41 corner by Rivals. He had offers from more than 20 schools, including Arizona, Arkansas and Oklahoma State, among others.
During the regular season, he made 79 tackles and seven interceptions, and was honored as a second-team AP all-state player.
Lake Travis Quarterback Charlie Brewer, recently an SMU commit, switched his pledge to Baylor early Saturday afternoon.
Brewer made his decision know with a statement on Twitter.
“After a lot of thought and prayer I am excited to announce that I am committing to Baylor University,” Brewer said. “Thank you Coach Rhule for this great opportunity.”
Brewer was named the Class 6A AP Offensive Player of the Year this past season, leading Lake Travis to a state championship. With a 2016 completion percentage of 77.2, Brewer set the national record for best completion percentage in a season.
These are the third and fourth commits to Matt Rhule’s 2017 class, joining DB’s Trevon Lewis and Jalen Pitre.
