Baylor LB Terrel Bernard announces return for 2021 season

December 18, 2020

Baylor football received more positive news on Friday afternoon when star linebacker Terrel Bernard (6-1, 222) announced via a Twitter video that he would be returning for the 2021 football season. 

Bernard, a redshirt junior, appeared to be on his way to an All-American campaign in 2020 prior to a shoulder injury against Iowa State in Baylor’s fifth game of the season that sidelined him for the season after surgery. 

The unfortunate injury was likely a key component to Bernard’s decision to return for at least one more season. 

Part of Baylor’s 2017 recruiting class, Bernard has registered 214 career tackles with 19.0 tackles for loss and 9.0 sacks. Additionally, Bernard has picked off three passes and forced three fumbles in his career. 

Bernard has started 18 career games and played in a total of 30. 

The news of Bernard’s return comes a day after SicEm365’s report that running back Trestan Ebner would return for an additional year of eligibity in 2021 that was granted by the NCAA due to COVID-19. Likewise, offensive lineman Xavier Newman also made the announcement that he would return in 2021.

Is his injury one that should have a full recovery?

I'm not a DR by any means. But I had the exact same injury my Senior year. I was rehabbing within 2 months and back lifting within 6. And he's 20 times the athlete I am. So I imagine he will be good to go

Terrell Bernard is a future All Conferenc, maybe All American. Fantastic that he is returning. Hope like hell Pitre returns, too. He has been the great surprise in the 2020 season. Why not guys? You can do grad work at Baylor AND play the game you love.

Can't recall which announcer but he called Bernard the best LB he's seen in 4 years. He very well could be the very best in America.

I don't know how hard Randa had to work to get him to stay, but this is like recruiting a top grad transfer.

It will be great having Terrell back, and his injury allowed Abram Smith to get some good, valuable experience this season. If Pitre come back, and I assume he will, we could have the best linebacking corps in the Big 12 next season.

Don't forget Matt Jones. He's showed flashes

Good News. Considering Dave Aranda's track record for getting players drafted in the first 2 rounds, it seems smart to spend another season under his tutelage.
