    Baylor coach Scott Drew continues to load up with talent for next season.

    Miami transfer forward Norchad Omier has officially signed with the Bears after committing on Sunday, giving Drew a skilled and veteran big man who averaged 17 points and 10 rebounds as a junior last season.

    St. John’s was also among those involved for Omier, the first person from Nicaragua to receive a Division I basketball scholarship.

    “Norchad exemplifies what a Baylor student-athlete is all about,” Drew said. “An all-conference performer in the ACC, he helped lead his team to a Final Four last season and won the Skip Prosser Award for academics in the ACC. He’ll be a great addition to the Baylor basketball program, someone the Baylor family will love getting to know, and a great role model for the Waco community.”

    Baylor is also adding Duke transfer guard Jeremy Roach, while bringing in five-star guards VJ Edgecombe of Long Island Lutheran (NY) and Rob Wright III of Montverde (FL) Academy.
