"I went to see Virginia play Miami and they lost in overtime which was kind of a bummer," Baptiste said. "I loved the fans there because they were really into the game and stayed loud throughout. The entire program is very "team" oriented and I liked that a lot about them."
"The fans were also crazy at East Carolina for the Marshall game," Baptiste explained. "ECU has a very solid team, a nice campus and great facilities. I also think Head Coach Skip Holtz is a great coach and really bringing that program up."
"I also went to Duke to watch them play North Carolina and loved the facilities and the campus. I like the history of the program and while it's been a while since they have been consistently good, they're definitely trying to get back on target now. They are also a very good academic institution which I am definitely looking for."
Baptiste registered 107 tackles, two sacks, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a safety as a junior.
