Baylor University Grants Releases To Five Football Signees

SPORTS-Baylor Football SPORTS-Baylor Football

Waco, Texas – Baylor University has granted a release from the National Letter of Intent to the five members of the Bears’ 2016 football recruiting class who formally requested such release prior to May 31.

Several members of the 2016 class enrolled for the first session of summer school, which began last month, and are participating in the Bears’ strength and conditioning program. Additional class members are expected to join the program for the second session of summer school in July.

“I wanted the opportunity to talk with our signees and their families before providing any releases,” said Baylor Acting Head Football Coach Jim Grobe. “This has never been about whether or not we would ultimately provide individuals with a release; we simply asked that we go through the process outlined by the NLI, take some time and have the chance to speak with the student-athletes and their parents. I’ve enjoyed those opportunities to meet with these families and wish each individual success in all that they do in life.

“I am very impressed with the young men who are here at Baylor and on our team,” he added. “We have great student-athletes who are working hard, committed to success and being a part of something special. I am committed to each one in their pursuit of academic and athletic excellence.”

Fall camp for Baylor’s 2016 football season begins Aug. 4 ahead of the Bears’ Sept. 2 season-opener against Northwestern State.
