Sunday morning, a few hundred players gathered in Arlington, TX to participate in the Under Armour Dallas Camp at Martin High School. Some of the best players in the DFW area participated, including the Bears lone commitment for the 2020 class and many more Baylor targets and offers.
Some of the bigger names for the Bears included Longview High School quarterback Haynes King, Cedar Hill wide receiver Quin Bright, Lancaster High School defensive back Lorando Johnson, Arlington high school corner Jahari Rogers, Waco Connally High School corner Korie Black and his teammate offensive lineman Trent Pullen, Cedar Hill High School lineman Courtland Ford, Reedy High School lineman Nate Anderson, Lancaster running back Kevontre Bradford, and West Mesquite High School running back Ty Jordan.
The camp started at 9am, with players entering the indoor practice facility to be measured and tested. After a brief media availability, the players went outside for position drills. With the UA staff, along with Deion Sanders there for his son Shedeur Sanders (2021 QB), gave the players instructions and coaching over a few hours.
While not a camp designed for colleges to attend, several high profile coaches were there along with their son. Baylor offensive coordinator Jeff Nixon was there supporting his son (William Nixon, 2020 WR Midway High School). Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy was also in town for the event as his son Gunnar Gundy (2020 QB, Stillwater High School). Finally, Arkansas head coach Chad Morris was there with his son Chandler Morris who attends Bishop Dunne Catholic High School.
While the focus of the event was on the 2020 class, several players from the 2021 class were represented in Arlington as well. Savvion Byrd, a 2021 lineman from Duncanville was possibly the biggest name in town, making the short drive across DFW. Brothers Blaine Green and Bryson Green were also in town from Allen High School.
