Euless Trinity LB headed to Baylor
By Damon Sayles and William Wilkerson
Four-star linebacker Brian Nance (Euless, Texas/Trinity) said he will play college football at Baylor during the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.
Nance, a 6-foot-3, 210-pound linebacker, chose Baylor out of offers from Arkansas and UCLA. Nance is considered the 15th-best linebacker in the country.
"The [Baylor] coaches act just like our Trinity coaches," Nance said. "They treated me like a family, and the players all respect each other. I like schools like that. I just want to fit in. They have a good recruiting class, and they're an up-and-coming program.
"When I went to the game [against Rice], I was there watching the fans. A lot of people knew me in the stands. Plus, I've seen a couple players I played against in 7-on-7. I just liked everything about it."
Nance added that even though he chose Baylor, he still plans to take visits to Arkansas and UCLA. He flies to Los Angeles the weekend of Jan. 13 and will schedule a visit to Arkansas shortly afterward.
