Baylor's best recruit came from its own backyard in a class heavy on defense. Highly touted safety Ahmad Dixon from Midway High in Waco is among a recruiting class of 23 players who signed Wednesday with the Bears. Dixon is one of 15 defensive players signed by coach Art Briles.

Dixon played in two high school All-American games and rated as the No. 3 safety nationally by and No. 10 by He had more than 300 tackles in three high school seasons.

Baylor's recruiting class includes four players who have already enrolled in school and will take part in spring drills that begin next month, including junior college transfer Robert T. Griffin. The Bears hope the offensive lineman from Navarro College will help protect quarterback Robert Griffin III, who's not related.
