Baylor football picked up its 12th commitment of the 2019 signing class, as safety/linebacker Jalen Celestine of Cecilia, La., made his pledge official on Wednesday.

Celestine (6-4, 190) announced his decision on Twitter, saying, “I would like to thank my coaches in believing in my talent and Coach (Matt) Rhule for giving me a chance to play at the next level.”

Baylor was the first Division I offer for Celestine, who has played safety at Cecilia High School but could potentially move to linebacker on the college level.

Ten of Baylor’s 12 commits have come on the defensive side.
