Marist High School is making its way through the Georgia High School playoffs. This Friday, Marist will face Ridgeland High School in Rossville, Georgia. Marist has been led by a strong senior class, surrounded by promising junior talent, namely Kendall Baker.

"I feel really good. It feels good to win and move on to the next round," Baker said of his team's success this fall. "We want to go all the way. We have to take it one round at a time, though."

Baker's 'one round at a time' mentality has overflowed onto his recruitment as well. With collegiate offers in the SEC and ACC, Baker's momentum continues to build.

"Washington came to my school [on Friday]," Baker said. "Ohio State also came to my school [on Friday]. I've been talking to both of them.

"I have offers from Washington, Tennessee, Florida State and Vanderbilt."

Although the offer hasn't come from the Buckeyes, Baker said his conversation with Ohio State "was good." He also said, "They told me to keep playing hard and keep going as hard as I can."

Washington has officially joined the hunt for Baker's commitment, telling him to "start considering whether I'd want to go up to a school in Washington." The conversation came hand-in-hand with an official offer.

The 'Noles and Vols jumped on board with Baker sooner. "I love Florida State and Tennessee. I want to take some more visits before I make any decisions.

"I just want to keep [my recruitment] going. I'm just going to let [the offers] come in. I'll get what I get."
