Scott Drew’s 2018 class may not be finished just yet.
The Baylor bears remain heavily involved with Memphis (Tenn.) Cordova point guard Tyler Harris, and on Friday, April 13, the Tennessee talent will bring his recruitment to a close, he announced on Twitter.

Rated as a 3-star prospect, Harris has visited Baylor on numerous occasions throughout the spring, with the most recent being an official visit in mid-March. The Bears aren’t without competition for Harris’ services, though. Tennessee and Memphis each remain major factors in his recruitment, with the latter gaining momentum after new coach Penny Hardaway offered Harris on March 21, just one day after taking over the Tigers basketball program.
Yet, despite the allure of staying home to play for a Memphis legend, Harris is still projected to side with Baylor, as four Crystal Ball projections rolled in on March 27, alone, and his overall Crystal Ball favors the Bears at 53 percent.
As is, Baylor’s four-man class includes 4-star small forward Matthew Mayer, 3-star center Flo Thamba, JUCO shooting guard Darius Allen, and unranked power forward Ibrahim Ali.
If Baylor can earn Harris’ commitment on Friday, it would significantly bolster what’s currently slotted as the nation’s No. 52-ranked recruiting class and the No. 7 class in the Big 12.
A 5-foot-9, 150-point prospect, Harris is ranked as the nation’s No. 128 player, No. 24 point guard and the No. 2 player in Tennessee, per the 247Sports Composite.
