Baylor basketball recruiting: 4-star SG King McClure commits to Bears


Months ago, the Baylor Bears established that 4-star shooting guard King McClure was the top recruit left on their board.

McClure was clearly very interested in the Bears as well, taking unofficial visits on the weekend October 12 in 2012 and on the weekends of September 7 and September 21 in 2013.

Although he has since flirted with other schools, visiting the Kansas Jayhawks on October 4 and the hometown SMU Mustangs on January 4, the Bears got their man on Tuesday when McClure gave his pledge to Scott Drew’s squad.

The 6’3, 198-pounder attends Triple A Academy in Dallas, Texas.

According to The Dallas Morning News, McClure, “one of the top point guards in the class of 2015, announced his commitment to Baylor during a ceremony at Triple A Academy on April 29.”

McClure averaged 21.6 points and 5 rebounds per game his junior season. He is considered the 12th-best shooting guard prospect in the country, the sixth-best overall prospect in the state of Texas and the 42nd-best overall prospect in the class of 2015, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.

McClure chose the Bears over the Arkansas Razorbacks, Alabama Crimson Tide and UCLA Bruins in addition to the Jayhawks and Mustangs.
