Bralen Taylor spent Saturday helping Cuero secure a berth in the 7-on-7 state tournament.

Taylor charted his future course Sunday by announcing a commitment to play football at Baylor.

Taylor, a senior, said he had 20 offers from a number of Division I schools, but chose Baylor primarily for family reasons.

"I chose Baylor because of the new staff," Taylor said. "And being able to have my family at most of my games. I don't care what you do, you have to think about family."

The 6-foot-7, 220-pound Taylor played receiver and quarterback for the Gobblers, who advanced to the Class 4A, Division II quarterfinals last season.

Taylor carried 54 times for 545 yards and 10 touchdowns, caught 18 passes for 377 yards and three touchdowns and completed 5 of 16 passes for 112 yards with one interception and one touchdown.

Taylor was also a member of the Cuero track and field team.

Taylor is likely to play receiver or tight end for the Bears.

Taylor said he also received offers from schools in the Big 12, Southeast Conference and Pac-12 conferences.
