Listen LIVE to SicEm365 Radio for discussion of Baylor’s newest QB commit!


Baylor on Wednesday received a commitment from Kyron Drones‍, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound quarterback who led Shadow Creek High School in Pearland to the Class 5A state title last season.

2021 BAYLOR FOOTBALL RECRUITING CLASS

A member of the 2021 class, Drones chose the Bears over offers from 25 diffferent schools. That group includes Auburn, Arkansas, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Michigan State, Northwestern, Ole Miss, Pitt, TCU and Vanderbilt, among others.

Drones has been one of the biggest risers in the state in recent months, as 22 of his offers have come since mid-January. He has gone from unranked to a near four-star prospect in a matter of four months.

Baylor offered just over a week ago, on April 20th, and it was a talk with Baylor offensive coordinator Larry Fedora that made the biggest impression.

“He told me how he usually doesn’t offer til he sees a quarterback throw in person,” Drones said, “but he couldn’t do that with me. He said he’s seen enough on tape and talked to my coaches enough to offer me.”

As a junior Drones led Shadow Creek to a 5A state title and was named Offensive MVP of the championship game. On the season he finished with 3,402 yards, 46 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while completing 56% of his passes. He also ran for 825 yards and 18 touchdowns.

One of his key weapons was receiver Seth Jones‍, a 2020 Baylor signee. The two have a strong relationship, so the opportunity to play together at the next level is “really exciting”, Drones said.

The tale of the tape.

Like Fedora, I watched the tape and that was enough. Smooth and effortless. Do you have to be at least 6-4 tall to be a 5-star? Easy 4-star by graduation next year.

Drone's film is interesting. He's not super elusive but he is big and strong and he breaks away from most tacklers. Reminds me in that regard of Cam Newton. I've read other places where he doesn't have a super strong arm, but in this film he has at least two passes of 55 yards and they were both on the money. Being an accurate deep passer is rare at the high school level - even in college to some extent. He also has really great touch on his passes. He throws loopers like coaches used to want you to before all the receivers wore gloves rather than the darts of RG3 and so many other pro QBs, but it doesn't seems to diminish his results. This guy is perfect for us.
