National singing day is now in the books and the Baylor Bears have signed 23 new members to the 2012 football squad.
Head coach Art Briles said in his recruiting announcement, “We feel very confident and very passionate about this class as being as good as we’ve ever signed in our five signing classes at Baylor.”
Looking at the list, it is clear that the primary goal for the Bears this year was to recruit on the defensive side of the ball. Almost two-thirds of the signees will play on the defense.
The team also made pickups on the offensive side, signing potential replacements for the stars that Baylor will be losing after this year.
The following will give a brief overview of all 23 players that can now call themselves Baylor Bears and what coach Briles thought of each one.
