Between a move to the Big 12, a 12-1 season in 2014, a Big 12 co-championship to go with that season and a strong 2015 recruiting class, there appears to be a perfect storm of recruitment brewing in Fort Worth.
When they met last October in Waco, Baylor and TCU started a combined 39 players who were once considered no better than three-star talents as recruits.
