Fresh Faces: Baylor

Here's the final installment of our Fresh Faces series, looking at players across the Big 12 with low profiles who will have an impact on the 2010 season.

The Bears will finish us up.

Prince Kent, S

Kent joins Ahmad Dixon as the two headline-making safeties crashing Baylor's camp as freshmen. He originally signed with Miami before enrolling at military school for a year after not qualifying. Kent took part in spring practice for the Bears and made five tackles in the spring game. He should push for meaningful playing time along with Dixon.

Kent also snared an interception in Baylor's first scrimmage of fall camp over the weekend.

Jarred Salubi, RB

You might be surprised to know that Salubi has the highest returning yards per carry average of any player in the league -- and he did it as a freshman. He ran for 298 yards on 50 carries for an average of just under 6 yards per carry. He's Baylor's starter at H-back, but he should get plenty of touches in 2010. Jay Finley carried the ball just 79 times because of injury, but Salubi will try to make the most of his touches once again. He also caught 19 passes for 153 yards.

Lanear Sampson, WR

Sampson started 11 games as a redshirt freshman and finished with 297 yards on 29 catches, with two touchdowns. The 5-foot-11, 200-pounder should improve on both of those numbers if Robert Griffin stays healthy this year. The two have already showed some nice potential with a 34-yard touchdown hookup over the top of the defense in the Bears' first scrimmage of the fall.

He also finished strong late in 2009, even without Griffin. In Baylor's final four games, he caught 14 passes for 167 yards and a score.
