Kameron Martin, Running Back
Port Arthur running back Kameron Martin got things started with a surprise commitment to Baylor on Tuesday. The 2016 running back was rated the seventh running back in the nation by Scout, and picked Baylor over the defending national champion Florida State Seminoles.

Martin texted our very own Kevin Barrera before it happened:
I guess that text this morning from @TeamKamMartin saying "I'm feeling Baylor" was clue for I'm committing. Lol. BIG pickup for the Bears!!— Kevin Barrera (@KBScoutBaylor) July 15, 2014
Port Arthur Memorial is a hotbed for Division I football talent. On Baylor’s roster right now are tight end Tre’Von Armstead and defensive back Terrance Singleton, both redshirt sophomores. Of course Baylor has its eyes on another Port Arthur running back: 2015 Texas Tech commit Corey Dauphine. He gave congratulations to his backfield-mate.

Patrick Hudson, Offensive Tackle
Baylor picked up another BIG commit after its Friday camp: former four-star Texas A&M commit Patrick Hudson flipped to Art Briles and the Baylor Bears. Hudson is ranked the 52nd player overall and the sixth offensive tackle in the class of 2016 by Scout. Going into his junior year, Hudson is already 6-foot-5 and 320-pounds. Kevin broke the news on this one at Baylor’s camp.

Following the Hudson commitment, Baylor offered unevaluated 2016 WR Tren’Davian Dickson. The Navasota product reportedly tore up 7 on 7 state football, and committed following a strong performance at Baylor camp on Friday. There is limited information available at this point on Dickson, but Craig Smoak shared proof that the newest Baylor commit has got hops:

After these three commitments, Baylor’s 2016 class stands at five, including three four-star recruits per Scout. Go follow all the new Bears on Twitter! (I haven’t yet seen a Twitter for Patrick Hudson)
Temple athlete Chad President is just coming back from a torn ACL, and did an interview with ESPN Central Texas about his current status. The biggest factoid to come from the talk was about President’s future position at Baylor.
President also got a chance to visit with an old Baylor quarterback:
