National rankings (Rivals 34; Scout 23).
Best in class: KD Cannon, wr, Mount Pleasant, Texas.
Best of the rest: Davion Hall, wr, Texarkana, Texas; Terence Williams, rb, Ennis, Texas; and two junior college transfers who are already enrolled at Baylor, Jarell Broxton, og, Gaithersburg, Maryland; and Grant Campbell, lb, Bakersfield, Calif.
Late addition: None, the Bears got early commitments and they stuck.
One that got away: None. Baylor fans watching a webcast that included a shot of the fax machine set next to the Big 12 championship trophy on the Waco campus saw every national letter of intent they expected to see.
NOTE: Briles said the Bears' success on the field is certainly having an impact on recruiting, not to mention the team moves into a new stadium next fall. "The difference now and three years ago? Three years ago, we were selling hope, vision and trying to acquire something," he said. "Now we're selling defending something. Our job is to defend a Big 12 championship."
