Kaian Roberts-Day leads the recruiting haul signed by the Baylor Bears during the opening day of the early signing period for the 2022 football recruiting class.
The Bears signed a class that featured two four-star recruits. Roberts-Day, a 6-foot-4, 240-pound athlete out of Festus High School in Festus, Missouri. Roberts-Day played tight end in high school and was pursued by two other Big 12 schools, Oklahoma State and Kansas, before he committed to the Bears.
Late Wednesday, the Bears picked up Lewisville, Texas, wide receiver Armani Winfield, who had nearly 2,000 receiving yards in high school.
The rest of Baylor’s class is filled with three-star players, per 247Sports.com. The next-highest ranked player in the class is offensive lineman George Maile, who plays for Bingham High School in South Jordan, Utah. At 6-foot-4, 290 pounds, Maile was pursued by USC, TCU, Boise State, BYU and California, among other schools.
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.
