When it came to deciding to make Baylor his future college, Christoph Henle believes the Bears were the right fit due to a variety of factors.
The Oakridge School (Arlington, TX) tight end and Austrian native announced a verbal commitment on Friday choosing to stay-in state over programs Illinois, Cal and Kentucky.
“I love the Coaching staff,” he said. “And I just felt that football wise and academic wise, I fit in.”
Henle is the third tight end to commit to Baylor in the 2018 recruiting class.
The Bears have also received verbals from Braylen Taylor of Cuero (Cuero, TX) and Clark (San Antonio, TX) prospect Ben Sims.
Prior to landing a scholarship offer from Baylor last month, the incoming senior had received offers from Stephen F. Austin, Northwestern State, Central Michigan, Houston, Bowling Green, Tulsa, Texas State, UNLV, UTSA, Rice, Illinois, Tulane, Kentucky and UConn.
Henle was at SMU’s Junior Day this past February as well as a camp at Kentucky on June 10, an unofficial visit to Vanderbilt the following day, and another at Minnesota less than a week later.
