OSU FNL: Jerome Baker

Ohio State's Friday Night Lights camp was filled with talented 2015 prospects, and one of the most impressive was Cleveland Benedictine linebacker/athlete Jerome Baker.

Ohio State held their second Friday Night Lights camp under Urban Meyer this weekend, and the event drew several highly-rated prospects. A large portion of the top players were actually from the 2015 class.

Cleveland Benedictine linebacker/tailback Jerome Baker was in attendance and impressed in position drills at both spots. Baker, 6-foot-1, 205-pounds, is one of Ohio's top junior prospects.

"Coming to Ohio State was something I did to make myself better, and I was really nervous," Baker stated. "The coaches asked me if I enjoyed being there, and I told them I definitely did. Ohio State is still there for me, and nothing has really changed. It was great."

While the jury is still out on his position at the next level, Baker said he enjoys playing both spots.

"I worked out at both linebacker and runningback and had fun," he admitted. "I think I did really well at runningback at Ohio State. Coach (Stan) Drayton actually told me he wanted to see me at runningback, and I had fun."

"At runningback, I can punish people when I have the football," Baker continued. "I worked a lot on my agility in the off-season, and I think it's paid off."

Baker currently holds eight scholarship offers, including schools such as Florida, Georgia Tech, Michigan, Ohio State and Penn State.

Following his attendance at Ohio State'S Friday Night Lights, Baker will be visiting Michigan this Sunday.
