Agbaroji talks about his visit to Waco
Even the darkest of clouds have silver linings. For the Bears - a team that has been overwhelmed by a plethora of injuries this year - that lining consists mostly of one thing. Recruiting.
Compared to the days of Guy Morriss and Kevin Steele, Art Briles' classes so far have been twice what they were earlier this decade. Even now as the Bears limp (most of them, anyway) into their conference game against Missouri this week, they do so with a top 50 class in 2010 - a fact even more impressive when you consider that last year's class that was the best Baylor had had in years and it wasn't even ranked that high.
For that reason alone, though the Bears might seem to be down, they're not out - not as a program with an eye on the big picture, at least - and no recruiting story tells that tale better than that of highly touted 011 corner Eric Agbaroji. During his visit to watch last week's game against the Cornhuskers, the Midlothian corner watched Baylor go into halftime down 20-0, due in part to blocked punt the Nebraska special teams returned for a touchdown. After a few half time adjustments, however, Baylor finally showed they can shut down Big 12 offenses when it matters most.
