Baylor adds 4 football players for spring

WACO, Texas (AP) Two early high school graduates who will be quarterbacks in Texas prep championship games this weekend will enroll at Baylor for the spring semester.

Baylor coach Art Briles announced Wednesday that Temple quarterback Chad President and Gilmer quarterback/receiver Blake Lynch have signed financial aid contracts and will join the Bears in the spring. Lynch is expected to be a receiver for the Bears.

Briles also announced the expected spring additions of two offensive linemen, junior college transfer Dominic Desouza of City College of San Francisco and 2014 Baylor signee Devonte Jones, from Bellaire High School in Houston.

President and Temple (13-1) are in the Texas Class 5A Division I state championship Saturday, a day after Lynch and undefeated Gilmer play for the Class 4A Division II title.
