OLB Raaquan Davis chooses Baylor

Outside linebacker Raaquan Davis (Heath, Texas/Rockwall-Heath) confirmed Monday morning that he has given Baylor his verbal commitment.

A four-star prospect, Davis became the Bears’ eighth overall commitment. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound junior chose Baylor over an offer from Colorado and interest from Oklahoma, SMU and Texas A&M.

Davis said location and a sense of comfort played a role in his decision.

“Baylor feels like home, and it’s close to home,” Davis said. “I love the coaches, and I love Baylor’s mindset and expectations to be the best.”

Recruited by Baylor linebackers coach Jim Gush, Davis is considered the 20th-best outside linebacker in the country. He is ranked No. 40 among all players in Texas. Davis became Baylor’s third outside linebacker to commit and the third four-star player to commit.
