Baylor receiver Robbie Rhodes, an incoming freshman from Fort Worth Southwest, continued his strong fall camp by grabbing four passes for 112 yards and a touchdown in today’s scrimmage in Waco. Rhodes’ TD came on a 78-yard strike from backup quarterback Seth Russell, who completed 10-of-14 passes for 162 yards.
Bryce Petty, the Bears’ starting quarterback, connected on 19-of-27 passes for 207 yards and two scores. But Rhodes’ emergence remains one of the Bears’ primary stories of fall camp.
“He is a dynamic guy. He has talent stored away,” said Baylor coach Art Briles, adding that Rhodes will contribute “without question” in the team’s Aug. 31 opener against Wofford. “He’s really good.”
Other notable efforts from Saturday’s scrimmage came from running backs Lache Seastrunk (4 carries, 36 yards) and Devin Chafin (8 carries, 37 yards), receiver Tevin Reese (6 catches, 74 yards), defensive end Chris McAllister (5 tackles, 2 sacks) and linebacker Kendall Ehrlich (6 tackles).
