WACO, Texas - In an effort to bolster his sprint crew for next season, Baylor track and field head coach Todd Harbour announced the signing of Trayvon Bromell (St. Petersburg, Fla.) to a National Letter of Intent.
"Trayvon is one of the top 100 and 200-meter guys in the country right now," Harbour said. "We are excited to bring him in and have him continue on the tradition we have had with sprinters. Coach Ford has done a great job with that group in the past and Trayvon will be a great addition to it."
On signing day in February, the eighth-year head coach said his men's class was, "still a work in progress," after adding just three athletes who were either middle distance or distance runners.
Bromell is a key competent in that work as he currently has the nation's ninth-fastest time in the 100 (10.42 seconds) and sixth-fastest time in the 200 (21.07). Those rankings include wind-aided times, which Bromell's aren't.
As a junior at Gibbs High School in 2012, Bromell was the Florida 3-A state meet runner-up in the 100-meters and finished fourth in the 200-meters. On his way to the state meet, Bromell won both evebts at the district and region levels.
His personal-bests are 6.33 in the 55-meters, 10.40 in the 100-meters and 21.01 in the 200-meters.
