Northwestern Football Recruiting: Baylor hosts Zach Cripps

2014 three-star pro-style quarterback Zach Cripps will be on an in-state unofficial visit today to check out the Baylor Bears, and he attended Baylor’s junior day back in early February. Cripps will be hoping for a Baylor offer, especially since the only offer in his recruitment comes from the Northwestern Wildcats. However, Cripps is high on the Big Ten program and is also hoping for in-state offers from Baylor, the Texas Longhorns, Texas A&M Aggies, and the Houston Cougars. Another major Texas program, the TCU Horned Frogs, is interested, but Cripps doesn’t seem as high on them.

One of the top 50 pro-style QBs in the country, Cripps has attended junior days with TCU, Baylor, UTSA, and even Texas State. Back in October, he checked in with Texas A&M on an unofficial visit. It will be interesting to see if the Bears offer him in the coming days as a result of his visit, because that could help Cripps garner some more future offers.

Ranked 951st in the nation by the 247Composite, Cripps checks in at 134th overall among recruits in the state of Texas in the 247Composite. Zach Cripps followed up a mediocre sophomore season with a terrific junior season that helped him get that crucial Northwestern offer (the Wildcats have a knack for spotting talented pro-style QBs in the three-star range). The Clear Springs High standout is touted by analysts in the state of Texas as an underrated QB after throwing for 2,818 yards, averaging 7.9 yards per attempt, completing 64.0% of his passes, tossing 23 touchdowns, only throwing six picks, and he also made some plays with his feet with 12 rushing touchdowns and 387 rushing yards overall.
