The Archbishop Carroll (D.C.) 6-foot-2 ½, 175-pound combo guard, who put up 51 in a game this past season, committed to Wichita State on Thursday.
Baker, who averaged 19 points as a senior, will spend this season at MCI (Maine) before enrolling at Wichita State.
``They really stuck with me and I felt comfortable with them," Baker said. "I went there for a camp in June and really liked it. It's real nice."
``I wanted to go somewhere that I can play right away and playing for Coach (Mark) Turgeon is a big plus."
Baker plays for former NBA rebounding machine Buck Williams with the Maryland Madness.
``He's a combo guard who can play the one or the two," Williams said. "He's very competitive, is a very good kid and has an extremely high basketball IQ."
``He's got a nice 16-foor jump shot, but his greatest strength is his ability to get the ball to the goal," added Williams. "He's great at attacking the rim."
``I think it's a great fit for both Evan and Wichita State," he continued. "They have a great program and a great staff and it's a system he can play and contribute right away. It's a great situation for both sides."
