Area Top-100: Baylor, Texas Tech lead way in courting Dallas' elite recruits
The SportsDayHS area top-100 recruiting rankings show players leaning toward the Big 12 in their college choices with Baylor and Texas Tech landing the most pledges about a month before National Signing Day, with 13 verbal commits between the two universities.
Baylor has 7 of the top-100 recruits, with Ennis running back Terence Williams leading the way. Williams, No. 15 in the area rankings, was the guiding force behind Ennis' state semifinal run in 2013. He finished the year rushing for 1,717 yards and scored 28 touchdowns.
Texas Tech has wrangled in 6 pledges so far with Skyline's Derrick Dixon as the top ranked recruit for the Red Raiders. Dixon, a defensive back, finished the regular season with 45 tackles, 13 pass breakups, 5 interceptions, 5 forced fumbles and 4 fumble recoveries. He is No. 14 in the area top-100.
Other Big 12 schools keeping close in the recruiting game are Texas (5 pledges), TCU (5) and Oklahoma (4).
Texas A&M has three, including the area's No. 1 prospect Myles Garrett.
Verbal commitments are non-binding.
The first day a football recruit from the Class of 2014 can sign a National Letter of Intent is Wednesday, Feb. 5.
