Baylor's top signee, Robbie Rhodes, is in
By David Ubben
Baylor's tradition of having absurd skill position talent under coach Art Briles looks poised to continue. Receiver Robbie Rhodes, the nation's No. 35 overall prospect, has officially sent in his letter of intent.
Baylor beat out a handful of in-state schools to earn the services of Rhodes, a 6-foot, 185-pounder from Fort Worth.
Quarterback Chris Johnson, a 6-foot-4, 195-pounder from Bryan, Texas, signed back in December and is enrolling early. He's the nation's No. 5 dual-threat quarterback.
Those are a pair of huge pickups for Baylor, which also earned a commitment from Waco native Andrew Billings on Tuesday. Billings is the nation's No. 13 offensive guard, but he'll play defensive tackle for the Bears at 6-foot-2, 308 pounds.
