Friday, little ole Baylor beat out Texas, LSU and others for top defensive tackle Javonte Magee. That's not the sort of thing that's supposed to happen. Robert Griffin III wasn't supposed to win the Heisman Trophy, either, and -- lo and behold -- the two are connected:
"The phone calls we're making are getting answered," [Baylor coach Art] Briles said.
All because of Griffin winning the Heisman.
"It's honestly been paramount for us," Briles said. "It's unchartered waters for us. And it's not just quarterbacks, it's at every position from receivers to defensive tackles. It's a once-a-year award for one person, not a multiple-player award. There is one Heisman.
"What it's done is given us a national brand. That's never happened at Baylor University before."
