Baylor head coach Scott Drew reeled in another elite-level frontcourt recruit Thursday when he received Dominic Woodson's commitment to come to Waco starting next season (h/t CBS Sports).

The Bears beat out NC State for the services of the 6'9", 265 lbs center from the Austin area.

Woodson is currently ranked No. 38 in the Rivals 150.

ESPN's scouting report on the Lone Star big man says:

This is a big with a diverse skill set. Absolutely committed to rebounding, Woodson has a presence in the lane. Very good finisher and he will put down the balls he's supposed to finish. His face up game is legit from the baselines and mid-wing area. Because of his IQ, you can run offense with him and he's an ideal high-post passer. Remarkable feel as a passer for a kid his size."

What kind of dominating frontcourt will the Bears have if they can retain 7'1" freshman Isaiah Austin and 6'8" freshman Rico Gathers, as well as 6'9" junior Cory Jefferson?

Especially since Austin has crazy perimeter skills for a player his length, the Bears could have a tri-towers lineup that is comparable to many NBA teams.

With this type of talent coming to campus, watch for the Bears to make repeated visits to the Sweet 16, the Elite Eight or even the Final Four in the next couple years.
