Gus makes the call

Gus Penning, the 6'5 245 tight end from Riverside CC by way of Jenison, Michigan, made his way to Waco on Thursday.

"I flew into Houston and then took a flight up to Waco and got in around 10:30."

Gus was able to take in the campus and Baylor's last camp of the year.

"The campus was beautiful. I'd driven from Amarillo to Riverside and thought all of Texas would be like a desert. But it reminded me of back home."

Who was your main recruiter?

"Coach (Jeff) Lebby took care of me and showed me a good time."

What all did you do?

"He showed me the campus and we went to George's."

What did you have there?

"I had the chicken fried steak and the crazy wings. It was so good."

Anything you'd like to say to the fans?

"I can't wait to be a part of Baylor's team and continue the success."

Gus will have 3 years of eligibility and is working towards enrolling graduating in December.
