Taylor signs with Baylor University

The Cuero Record
Baylor University’s pipeline of Cuero High School graduates continued Dec. 20, when class of 2018 tight end Bralen Taylor signed with the Bears’ football program. Taylor is the 14th Gobbler to take his talents to Waco since the 1970s and first since Kaeron Johnson chose the school in 2008.
Holding offers from 15 FBS (Football Bowl Subdivision) Division I schools, including College Football Playoff semifinalist Georgia and two Big 12 rivals (TCU and Texas Tech), Taylor stood with his commitment made to Baylor in June.
“It’s a big relief, because the recruiting process can be very stressful,” Taylor said after signing in front of a packed Cuero ISD administration office. “[I’m] talking to a different coached almost everyday, but once you finally get to sign, it’s a big relief.”
Not heavily recruited until after his junior season, Taylor focused his mindset on getting better everyday, mentally and physically. He received his first offers Feb. 5 from the University of Houston and Oklahoma State University. Baylor followed suit the next day.
