It hasn’t taken Chris Platt long to get back to his speedy, big-play self for the Baylor Bears.
After missing the final eight games of the 2017 season with a knee injury, the fifth-year senior receiver has rebounded to haul in 26 catches for nearly 400 yards and a score over the team’s first 10 games this season, according to ESPN.
It’s not that it wasn’t expected from the 5-foot-11, 170-pound speedster, who was selected to a fourth-team preseason All-Big 12 selection. Platt now ranks 23rd on Baylor’s career receiving yards list (1,270) and five of his 11 touchdowns have gone for over 70 yards.
Platt has already completed his undergrad degree at Baylor and in 2017 competed on the school’s track and field team, where he was named an All-American in the 4x400m relay and figured prominently in the Bears’ winning the Big 12 title.
The Bears currently have a record of 5-5—3-4 in the Big 12—and end the regular season by hosting TCU and Texas Tech.
