Baylor football down to one commit in Class of 2017

It is rough times in Waco.

After an offseason sexual assault scandal rocked the Baylor football program and led to the dismissal of multiple administrators, including head coach Art Briles, who knowingly turned a blind eye to sexual assault accusations, the Bears continue to feel the fallout on the recruiting trail.

On Sunday morning, three-star defensive back Noah Daniels took to Twitter to announce he has decommitted from the program.

“I have a lot of love for Baylor University and I have a great relationship with Coach Buckels and I believe Baylor is a very good school athletically and academically, but I believe it’s best for me to further my career elsewhere,” Daniels wrote. “…This was not an easy decision, and my next commitment will be 100 percent.”

With Daniels’ decision, Baylor now has just one commit in the Class of 2017: three-star athlete Jalen Pitre.

At a time when many programs are loading their recruiting classes and courting at least ten incoming recruits, Baylor is severely behind the eight ball. You aren’t going to build a program without incoming talent, and no one is going to want a job at a school no one wants to play for.

Hey, you know what they say about karma.
