When defensive tackle Andrew Billings decided to stay home and play for Baylor, it was more than just exciting for coach Art Briles and his staff.
"That's quite an understatement. ... It was pandemonium, and it was a lot of fun," Briles said of the reaction when they found out that Billings, the four-star recruit from Waco High School, was signing with the Bears. "You put in a lot of long hours, and there is a certain amount of stress. It certainly was a relief when Andrew decided to come here."
