MBB: Dain Dainja Makes It Official

November 13, 2019

Dain Dainja is an ultra skilled big man with the size, wingspan, quickness and strength to be a major impact player.  He was the first 2020 commit for Baylor and anchors a class rated #8 by 247Sports.  He is joined in this outstanding 2020 class by explosive guard LJ Cryer and a skilled big man in Zach Loveday.  When Dainja committed, I interviewed him on why he chose Baylor here.  

Here are a few comments on how it feels to make it official.  

How does it feel to make it official?  

Dainja:  It feels amazing making things official with Baylor!  I’ve been waiting for this moment for a long time and I just want to thank my mom and dad for guiding me to get to this point!  I just can’t wait to get on campus and put on for Baylor.  

Are you watching Baylor games?  

Dainja:  For sure, I will be watching EVERY Baylor game this year.  

What are your goals this year on and off the court?

Dainja:  My goals for this season are to just become a better leader and bring the energy to my team and be able to take my team to the state championship and win it!  Also, I want to give the young guys all the knowledge that I know about the game so they can be successful as they continue their high school careers.  Off the court, I want to set a good example for others because I know a lot of people look up to me so I NEED to smile more and try to make a good impact on other people.

love the interview. Dain, college is a special time to grow and develop as a man spiritually, intellectually, mentally and physically. Don't waste the opportunity. You have great mentors in these coaches. Embrace the process and getting better every day and you will make a lot of money playing basketball over your lifetime. I love your comment about smiling. Guys like Tweety Carter, Quincy Acy and Ish Wainright embraced that at Baylor and they will always be loved as fan favorites as a result. Basketball is meant to be fun so embrace the joy of playing basketball.

Could end up being one of the best classes in Baylor history! Super pumped to see this guy get out here and let Drew develop him into yet another fantastic bball player and even better man.
