Baker recently updated his favorites list, moving Arkansas and Duke into the top four with Georgia Tech and Tennessee. When asked if he had a No. 1 pick, Baker responded, "I can't say I really have a favorite." "The team that stands out the most is Georgia Tech because of their academics, but I mean Duke also has a good academic program so it's kind of a toss up right now because everybody has an equal opportunity."
The speedy wideout is still rehabilitating his injured hamstring and describes his progress as "perfect." "I've been working out every morning. My coach has me doing a lot of calisthenics so it's coming along real good. I'd probably say I'm about 95% and if I wanted to go out and run full speed right now I think I could."
Baker has taken notice of the Yellow Jackets' highly talented recruiting class for 2007 and he believes it can only make him a better player if he ends up with the Jackets. "I know if they bring in a lot of good players it's only going to better me when I get there."
With Georgia Tech's scholarships waning, Baker feels no pressure to pull the trigger right now. "I don't think it's pressuring me at all; I'm just going to wait and see what all offers I get and the best offer I get for me I'm going to take." "If they want me they'll wait and if not it will work out just fine."
Baker claims to have been in regular contact with Chan Gailey and Giff Smith and is scheduled for an unofficial visit to Georgia Tech on Saturday, August 5th. When asked to confirm his visit for the first weekend in August, Baker said, "It's set in stone."
