Baylor football earned a commitment from 3-star Pflugerville Hendrickson (Texas) safety Myles Brooks on Friday.
He announced his commitment on his personal Twitter account.

The 2019 prospect is a rangy safety prospect who perfectly fits the profile of what Baylor coach Matt Rhule likes at safety. With 6-foot-2 size and 4.5 speed, Brooks has the ability to cover and closing speed to tackle in space. He attends the same high school as former Bears safety Chance Waz.
Brooks is rated a 3-star prospect and the No. 393 overall player in the nation by 247Sports. That makes him the highest-rated player in Baylor’s recruiting class. However, other recruiting services have yet to rate him, so Brooks does not have a composite ranking as yet.
The Central Texas picked Baylor on Friday despite receiving an SEC offer from Arkansas on Thursday. He picked up an offer from Rhule’s staff on Sunday. His other offers include Louisiana Tech, FIU and Texas State.
Brooks is the second commitment in two days for Baylor, after 3-star Houston Klein defensive end Harrison White committed on Thursday. The Bears now have six players committed in the class of 2019. With Brooks’ commitment, the Bears’ class is up to No. 33 in the nation. Five of the six commits are from the state of Texas.
