Baylor offensive lineman Bryce Simpson enters NCAA transfer portal

Chandler Vesselsby:Chandler Vessels04/29/24


Baylor offensive lineman Bryce Simpson has entered the NCAA transfer portal. He spent the past two seasons with the Bears but will now look elsewhere to continue his college career.

Simpson redshirted his true freshman season in 2022 after committing to Baylor as a three-star prospect out of Cy Ranch High School in Cypress, Texas. He ranked as the No. 953 overall player and No. 72 offensive tackle in the 2022 cycle according to the On3 Industry Ranking, a weighted average that utilizes all four major recruiting media companies.

Standing 6-foot-5 and 304 pounds, Simpson has the size needed to contribute as a tackle wherever he decides to transfer. Although he wasn’t able to find many opportunities at Baylor, he still has plenty of time to make the most of his remaining eligibility.

Bryce Simpson is the fourth Baylor offensive lineman to enter the transfer portal this offseason. The Bears have lost 11 players total while bringing in 10 this offseason to rank No. 51 overall and No. 7 in the Big 12 according to On3’s Team Transfer Portal Rankings.

Baylor lands commitment from Western Kentucky edge rusher transfer JaQues Evans

Baylor has added a commitment from an all-conference-caliber player, snagging a pledge from Western Kentucky EDGE transfer JaQues Evans.

Evans was named the 2023 CUSA Preseason Defensive Player of the Year but saw his junior campaign cut short due to injury after just six games.

He’s capable of absolutely stuffing the stat sheet.

As a sophomore in 2022, Evans logged 106 tackles, 14.0 tackles for a loss, 9.0 sacks, two fumble recoveries, a blocked kick and five passes defended. For that he was named to the 2022 All-Conference USA first team.

In four seasons at Western Kentucky, Evans recorded 182 tackles, 19.0 tackles for a loss, 12.0 sacks, five fumble recoveries, three forced fumbles, a blocked kick and seven passes defended.

Prior to enrolling at Western Kentucky, JaQues Evans was ranked as a three-star recruit and the No. 723 overall prospect in the 2020 recruiting class, according to the On3 Industry Rankings.

He also checked in as the No. 18 athlete in his class and the No. 75 overall player from the state of Georgia, hailing from Dublin.
