Armani Winfield became the second four-star player to commit to the Baylor Bears when he flipped his previous commitment and signed with on Wednesday.
Winfield, a 6-foot-2, 180-pound wide receiver from Lewisville, Texas, had been considered a solid commit to the Texas Longhorns, per 247sports.com. Most of the site’s experts had him heading to the Longhorns, with just one, Steve Wilftong, predicting Baylor.
Winfield announced his signing in a ceremony at Lewisville High School.
Baylor added Winfield to its tracker as a signee on Wednesday afternoon.
Winfield finished with 66 receptions for 1,006 yards and eight touchdowns in 2021. He was a unanimous First-Team All-District selection. He had 191 receptions, 2,678 receiving yards and 26 touchdowns for his high school career. He is also an Under Armour All-American who is the No. 31 prospect in Texas.
He chose Baylor over Alabama, Texas, Texas A&M, Michigan, Michigan State, Florida, Florida State and Ole Miss.
His signing bumped Baylor’s overall recruiting class to No. 40, per 247Sports. While that’s just No. 7 in the Big 12, that means that 70 percent of the Big 12 has a Top 40 class right now.
Baylor already had a solid class before it snagged Winfield, featuring another four-star recruit in Kaian Roberts-Day. The rest of Baylor’s class is filled with three-star players.
The Bears, led by head coach Dave Aranda, finished the 2021 season with a 11-2 record and played in the Big 12 Championship Game, beating Oklahoma State, 21-16. The Bears will play in the Sugar Bowl on Jan. 1 against Ole Miss.
