Baylor has received an immediate lift to its offensive line for the 2021 football season.
Buffalo grad transfer offensive lineman Jacob Gall announced on Twitter he would be joining the Bears after entering the transfer portal two weeks ago following the departure of his former head coach Lance Leipold to the Kansas Jayhawks.
Thank you to everyone at Buffalo for an unforgettable and successful 4 years. After countless hours of discussion with my family and friends I have decided to finish my college career at Baylor! #SicEm pic.twitter.com/OsGQofDzuu

Gall started every game at guard for Buffalo during the 2020 season, which helped power the offense to score over 43 points per game and nearly 300 rushing yards per game.
According to Pro Football Focus, and as reported by SicEm365, Gall was the highest-graded left guard in the nation with a grade of 90.5.
Despite playing three seasons at Buffalo, the grad transfer, who is eligible immediately, will have two years of eligibility remaining thanks to the NCAA providing a free year of eligibility following the COVID-ridden 2020 athletics season.
Gall is expected to play a role in helping fill out the center position or one of the guard positions.
Baylor is coming off a 2-7 season as they try to turn things around in Year 2 under Dave Aranda.
