BYU received some good news Thursday when QB Baylor Romney affirmed his commitment to BYU. His younger brother Gunner (a BYU commit) confirmed the news via twitter:
Shout out to my older brother on his commitment to BYU. Can't wait to ball together up at the Y Show @baylorromney some love!! pic.twitter.com/S4zopFxmrQ— Gunner (@gunnerromney2) September 22, 2017
Gunner is a 2018 4-star wide receiver who committed to BYU over summer. Baylor’s pledge to BYU further reaffirms Gunner’s commitment to BYU, as both brothers have longed been believed to be a package deal. Baylor said as much Friday on ESPN 960 radio.

Background on Baylor
Baylor was a member of the 2015 recruiting class and signed with Nevada before his mission. An ESPN 3-star QB, Baylor left straight on a LDS mission out of high school. Baylor was looking at some Pac 12 schools when he got home from his mission this past June, but his brother’s commitment to BYU drew him to Provo.
As far as playing style, Baylor is a dual-threat QB. As a high school senior in Texas, Baylor led his team to a District I (6A) championship. He passed for nearly 3,000 yards, and threw for 29 TD’s while completing over 70% of his passes.
Baylor is the second QB in BYU’s 2018 recruiting class that has pledged his commitment to BYU; Zadock Dinkelmann (nephew of Ty Detmer) committed to BYU back in May. BYU is currently one of the leaders to land 2018 5-star QB Tanner McKee, who will serve a LDS mission before enrolling in school.
