Byron Bonds, a 6-foot-2, 280-pound defensive tackle from Allen, Texas, has pledged to sign with the Bears, according to multiple sources.
Arkansas State, Colorado State, Iowa State and Tulsa also extended scholarship offers to Bonds. Southern Methodist and Texas-San Antonio were among the other programs recruiting the senior defender.
Baylor now has 15 Class of 2013 commitments. The Bears signed three-star wide receiver Jonathan Lee in 2011 and three-star offensive tackle Luke Burleson in 2010 out of Allen.
