The class of 2017 Alabama commit is set to for another season as a member of the defending JUCO National Champions, City College of San Francisco. Winning back-to-back national titles is the goal for the Rams. Elliot Baker has no ties to the state of Alabama but was determined to forge a path to the “Mecca” of college football – Tuscaloosa.
The journey to academically qualify and garner attention from the Tide coaching staff began at CCSF, literally across the street from his high school. Baker, scheduled to be an early enrollee, alternates at either tackle position in the power spread offense but would welcome a chance to anchor the coveted left side at the next level. He was a consensus 2015 NCFC All-Conference Bay 6 as a freshman and named a preseason All-American by CG Recruiting as well as a Super Soph by Sporting News.
BamaMag.com met with Baker on the urban campus to discover more about the tall, soft-spoken, athletic offensive tackle intent on competing in “the best conference in America” - SEC.
