Dressed in his Adidas Nations gear, Isaiah Austin, the nation's No. 2-ranked player in the class of 2012 made a decision on his future Monday night.
Speaking to a national television audience on CBS College Sports, the 6-foot-11 center from Arlington (Texas) Grace Prep confirmed that he'll be a Baylor Bear.
"It's Baylor," Austin told Rivals.com after the announcement. "It's close to home, it's a good school and a great fit. My family and I talked about it and decided that it was time to get it done."
An immensely talented player with small forward skills, Austin figures to be the perfect anchor for Scott Drew's zone and he'll likely be allowed the chance to play on the perimeter a bit in the Bears offense.
