Former Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin III will be honored in a big way outside of McLane Stadium.

A 9.5-foot bronze statue of the school's first-ever Heisman Trophy winner will be installed in the south end zone plaza in time for the Bears' 2014 season-opener against SMU on Sunday, Aug. 31.

According to Fox Sports' David Ubben, Griffin's pose for the statue will kept secret until its unveiling. Artist Tom White took photos of RGIII in his Baylor jersey this summer then Griffin and Baylor officials had an opportunity to weigh in on the design.

The RGIII statue is just one reason to be excited about Baylor's fancy new waterfront stadium. Others include state-of-the-art facilities, a scenic view and opportunities for pregame "sail-gating."
