Josey is very confident

If you consider that the recruiting year for the 2010 class began the day after national signing day last February, then it is still somewhat early in the year. Although there is still a long way to go before Baylor fills up their 2010 class, one position that is well on is already in a good position is defensive back.

The Bears already have a commitment from rivals100 member Ahmad Dixon as well as the versatile Tristan Holt, and with a recent offer extended to Angleton athlete Henry Josey.

Similar to Chance Casey who the bears signed in 2009, Josey lines up at running back for his high school team but is being recruited to Baylor as a defensive back. TCU and UTEP have also offered the south Houston athlete with the intention of playing him on offense.

"I was really excited," Josey said about receiving the offer. "I'm looking forward to going down there to visit the college and to see if I want to make it my home."

For a corner to be successful he has to be able to play on an island almost isolated from everything else that is going on. Every play is a one on one battle between the corner and the receiver, and that's what Josey enjoys about the position.

"I'm a shutdown corner. I have the speed for it and I know everything that is going on out there," said Josey. "It's really easy for me, and I love the competition out there."

Josey was planning on attending one of Baylor's camps this month but isn't going to be able to. Instead he plans to attend the Bears' one day camp in July where he will get a chance to visit the facilities, meet with the coaches, and learn more about Baylor University.

According to Josey he doesn't expect to make a decision until much later in the year, but he already has a high opinion of Baylor and indicated that if he is blown away by his visit then a commitment may come then. He currently lists Baylor in his top three along with Purdue and Texas A&M, and he also has a lot of interest in Texas Tech.

"Right now they're (Baylor) looking really good. They have a pretty good team with a lot of players coming," said Josey. "The coaches are really good. I love the coaches. They're easy to talk to, and I understand everything they tell me."
