Baylor has added a quality prospect to the 2018 class in 4-star small forward Matthew Mayer.

John Werner of the Waco Tribune-Herald first reported the news.

The Austin native is considered the 16th-best wing in the country by Scout.com and the No. 60 player overall. He is also the No. 2 at his position in the state of Texas.

Mayer has good size for the position at 6'7", although he can stand to add some strength to his 190-pound frame. In the meantime, he excels as a shooter who should be able to consistently get looks off in college.

He also has solid athleticism that helps him on both ends of the court, which could help him make an early impact with the Bears.

Although he had offers from Texas, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M, Mayer instead chose Baylor to help the squad build off its Sweet 16 run from this past season.

He is the second commitment in the 2018 class for Baylor, joining point guard Jeremiah Gambrell.
