Baylor loses two more recruits as Art Briles fallout deepens

Updated at 11 a.m. ET

The exodus of Baylor football recruits continues in the wake of Art Briles' firing, as wide receiver Hezekiah Jones and safety Donovan Stiner announced their decommitment from the program via Twitter on Saturday night.

Jones is the nation's No. 122 overall prospect and No. 16 wide receiver in the 2017 recruiting class, according to 247Sports, and Stiner is the No. 72 safety in the country.

Jones, ESPN notes, has been heavily recruited by Notre Dame, Alabama, Oregon, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, among other programs, but the Stafford (Texas) High School prospect committed to Baylor almost a year ago.

Jones' and Stiner's change of hearts bring the number of Baylor's lost 2017 commitments to four since the school announced Thursday that Briles would be fired amid the sexual assault and domestic violence scandal involving several of his players. Defensive lineman Jayden Peevy – a Houston Bellaire teammate of Stiner — and Waco La Vega tight end Kedrick James also said they won't be attending Baylor.

Baylor had six 2017 recruits signed on before Thursday.

More bad news for the Bears may come Monday. ESPN reports that Patrick Hudson, the No. 1 offensive guard in the 2016 class who Baylor signed in February, will not enroll in summer classes on Monday and is considering going elsewhere.  At least three Baylor signees for 2016 have told ESPN they want to be released from their national letters of intent.
