The Baylor Bears picked up a commitment from Georgia offensive lineman Sean Thompkins Tuesday afternoon. A 6-foot-4, 331 pound interior offensive lineman, Thompkins chose Baylor over Florida, Tennessee, and Kentucky as his final group. He had 9 overall offers including Georgia Tech, Temple, West Virginia, and interest from Georgia.

Out of Covington, Georgia and playing for Newton High School, Thompkins was offered by Baylor on June 7th and came to an official visit the weekend of June 10th. He also visited Florda on June 17th and Kentucky on June 13th. With offensive line coach Eric Mateos leading the charge, Thompkins had a quick but powerful connection to what Baylor is providing him.

Thompkins was recently rated as an 88-grade recruit by 247Sports, though he still is waiting for his 247Sports Composite Ranking. The 247Sports team has him as the 35th best interior offensive lineman in the nation and the 46th best recruit in Georgia. The Bears still likely have another spot open, possibly for a true tackle in the 2023 class. Baylor’s class is now 17-players strong, with 9 commitments on offense and 8 commitments on defense. The Bears still have work to do on the trail, with spots on the defensive line, offensive line, and defensive backfield left to fill. With another week of official visitors and two camps let this summer, stay tuned for more on the Bears 2023 recruiting class.
