For quite a while it seemed like UTEP was the team to beat for Dallas (Texas) Skyline dual-threat quarterback/athlete Anthony Norice, but another in-state team made a late push and got the commitment in the end.
His only two offers came from the Miners and the Baylor Bears. However, Baylor turned up the heat to the credit of recruiting coach Wesley McGriff. That made all the difference as the 6-foot, 172-pound Norice announced today where he was headed.
"I'm heading to Baylor for school and I'll be taking my trip there on Jan. 13," Norice said. "I just liked their offense and they told me that I could in and battle for the starting job."
Baylor was recruiting him for wide receiver but it appears that he'll come in looking to battle at quarterback along with being an athlete for the Big 12 school.
UTEP was in the lead for a while, but the recruiting pressure was turned down a bit as of late.
"Baylor just came on real strong and UTEP wasn't coming on me as much anymore," he said. "UTEP just kind of stopped talking to me there for a while."
