Class of 2015 combo guard Alyssa Dry of Fort Worth, Texas switched verbal commitments from the University of Texas to Baylor this week after an unofficial visit to the Big 12 school. Dry, who made a verbal pledge to Texas in the fall of 2012, had a change of heart in early February and decided to switch from the Big 12 school in Austin to the Big 12 school in Waco.

As a 5-foot-7 combo guard Dry has the ability to give Baylor the kind of production to potentially fill the void left from current senior Makenzie Robertson during her career for Kim Mulkey and her staff. Dry is a skilled guard who thrives playing in space. While she can make the occasional play off the bounce, she could really make an impact in catch-and-shoot situations where she spaces the floor and allows driving lanes and post spacing for her teammates. Throughout her high school career she has worked on adding a one-dribble pull up to her arsenal and if she can become more consistent in this area she could be a nice threat as a secondary scorer for the Baylor Bears.

Dry will join four-star guard Alexandria Gulley as the second member of the class of 2015 for the Bears. Gulley, who committed to Baylor in the summer before her ninth grade year, is a skilled point guard with a smooth mid-range jumper. With two 2014 signees, forward Dekeiya Cohen of Charleston, S.C., and post Micayla Buckner of Garland, Texas, coming to bolster Baylor’s front line, it makes sense that Mulkey and her staff looked to add talent to their backcourt early in their 2015 recruiting.

Look for Baylor to focus in on an impact prospect or two such as 6-foot-7 post Teaira McCowan of Brenham, Texas, or 6-3 post Erin DeGrate of Waco, Texas, as the Bears will have as many as three more scholarships to give for the 2015 class.
