The Baylor football program has gained a lot of national steam recently, and with 90 percent of their roster coming from the lone star state, they understand the importance of recruiting locally. The entire Baylor coaching staff rolled into Marshall Saturday afternoon to put on a camp for high school students to sharpen their skills, but also to get a glimpse at the talent from the Ark-La-Tex.
Over 150 students from East Texas, Arkansas, and Louisiana braved the heat to learn under Baylor head coach Art Briles, who has really put the Bears back on the map. Baylor commit and Liberty-Eylau stud Davion Hall was in attendance, sporting head to toe Bear gear.
Also in attendance were Carthage's quarterback Blake Bogenshutz and Tatum's Kyshaun Smith. From the boot state, Byrd was on the field and the Woodlawn Knights bused in 12 players. On the heels of receiving his LSU offer as a freshman, North Webster's Devin White was also working out.
Briles says he completely understands how important this part of the country is to recruit because of it's hot bed of talent.
