JUCO OT Maurice Porter commits to Baylor Bears (again)


On National Signing Day on February 6, 2013, offensive tackle Maurice Porter signed with the Baylor Bears after flipping his commitment from the Texas Tech Red Raiders to Baylor two days earlier.

Porter, however, did not qualify and had to attend junior college.

On Friday, Porter again committed to Baylor. E.J. Holland of the Dallas Morning News has the scoop.

“I was always keeping in touch with coach (Randy) Clements,” Porter told Rivals.com. “When we weren’t playing a game, I always watched Baylor on TV. So I was hoping this was going to work out. It did.”

Baylor lost Huntsville offensive lineman Ronnie Major to Texas earlier this week, but Porter, who stands at 6-foot-6, 295-pounds, is an adequate replacement. He is now the fourth member of Baylor’s 2015 class.

Before attending junior college, Porter played at Fort Bend Marshall High School in Missouri City, Texas and was a 3-star composite recruit (but a 4-star according to 24/7 Sports).

The 6’5, 290-pound Porter plans to graduate in December and enroll in January.
