Summer teammates Quincy Miller and Deuce Bello -- two consensus top 50 prospects from the Class of 2011 -- verbally committed to Baylor on Thursday and made it clear that Scott Drew's program won't suffer in recruiting because of recent negative headlines.
MaxPreps.com ranks Miller, a 6-foot-9 forward, No. 4 in the class.
Bello, a 6-4 combo guard, is No. 45.
Miller's commitment means Baylor will likely have a signee in the McDonald's All-American game for the second consecutive season considering Perry Jones, now a freshman on campus, made it last March. It's also worth noting that Isaiah Austin, a 7-0 center from the Class of 2012, should make it three straight McDonald's All-Americans next year. MaxPreps.com ranks him No. 2 in the class of 2012. He's already committed to Baylor.
