The Nike SPARQ scores are widely known as the best way to identify the top high school football prospects in terms of athletic ability in all of the country. Though the scores don't fully reflect the football ability of a prospect, it equates all physical attributes of a prospect relative to the game of football including size, speed, quickness and explosiveness into one specific number.

While Baylor's 2019 class will indeed be much smaller than the 27 and 23-prospect classes in 2017 and 2018, there is a greater opportunity to be selective in the prospects signed. 

Through Matt Rhule's first two signing classes since arriving at Baylor in December of 2016, the average SPARQ ratings of the prospects who completed the testing averaged 94.81 (44.4% of the class) in 2017 and 88.95 (54.6%) in 2018. With 12 commitments in 2019, five of those (41.7%)  have combined for an average of score of 113.6.

Below is a look at the SPARQ scores of the 62 prospects who have signed with or committed to Baylor since February of 2017.

Bolded selections are measurements confirmed through SPARQ testing.
