Just a week after landing former Baylor commit and 2016 four-star Pflugerville Hendrickson defensive back Keshawn Somerville, TCU reeled in 2015 three-star Keller Fossil Ridge defensive back Montrel Wilson, who backed out of his pledge to the Bears in October.
Runner-up Melvin Gordon has already said he will be skipping his last year of eligibility at Wisconsin to enter the NFL draft. Alabama receiver Amari Cooper, the other finalist who finished third in the Heisman voting, also is probably on his way to the NFL after the Crimson Tide are done chasing another national championship.
OK, it happened. On college football’s biggest and (I hesitate briefly here) “best” stage ever, Baylor and TCU were ying-yang stuffed by a 12-member national committee of, so-they-say, unbiased observers.
