Offense: ESPN ranks Baylor’s class the 21st best in the nation, thanks in large part to four highly coveted receivers, including All-Americans KD Cannon and Davion Hall. Coach Art Briles called it the “No. 1 receiving class in America.” Four offensive players enrolled in January, including Hall and Ennis running back Terence Williams.

Defense: Briles expects three defensive transfers to make an impact in 2014. Linebacker Grant Campbell and defensive backs Tion Wright and Chris Sanders could challenge for starting roles after enrolling early. “We’re bringing those guys in to play” now, Briles said.

Immediate impact: Jarell Broxton, OL. The junior from Lackawanna College should figure in the Bears’ 2014 plans after enrolling early.
