Swedenburg Enjoys MSU Trip

Despite visiting the Mississippi State campus dozens of times in his life, Baker Swedenburg had been waiting for this past weekend's visit for as long as he could remember. Baker took his official visit this weekend as a Bulldog football commitment.

"The visit went great," said Baker. "I expected it to be great. All of the coaches were there and it was just awesome."

Swedenburg was hosted by MSU kicker Adam Carlson and the Bulldog punter to be enjoyed being in a smaller group of visitors.

"We could talk to the coaches as much as we wanted to," said the talented punter. "They weren't hung up talking to a lot of other prospects or parents. At first I kind of wanted to come in with all of the other commitments last weekend, but I think this worked out pretty well with it being just us."

Swedenburg got the chance to hang out with another Columbus, Mississippi native. It turns out the two were teammates before during their youth sports careers.

"I have known Tobias since we were little," said Baker. "It's going to be fun getting to play with him again. We played baseball and basketball together when we were little. Now we get to play football. It's going to be fun."

Baker found some common ground to begin a friendship with another commitment this past weekend.

"I got to talk a lot with Kendrick Cook," said Baker. "We have a lot in common. We both play drums for our churches. We will have other things to talk about besides football, like music and stuff."

Baker plans to enroll at Mississippi State this summer in hopes of getting ahead academically.

"I am going to try to get in there and knock out some classes, so I can get a good start on college," said Baker. "After I finish with baseball, I will go right back into football workouts. I will already be in shape."
