Baker chooses Clemson

Adrian Baker had narrowed down his list to Clemson and Oklahoma and he's decided he'll be a Tiger. The 2013 cornerback originally committed to Florida State but decided it wasn't the right fit. He then visited both Clemson and Oklahoma and decided Clemson would be his new home.

Adrian Baker said Clemson just had everything he was looking for and he's excited for the opportunity to make an early impact.

"It's a great program, there's consistency in the coaching staff, an at home feel, I can succeed on and off the field, I can help early there as a freshman," he said.

"They say I can come in and compete and I should be good. I'm going to go in with that mindset and we'll see what happens."

The Chaminade-Madonna Prep (Hollywood, FL) standout said he's already built strong bonds with several of the coaches and he's thrilled to join his new family soon.

"We have great relationships, me and Coach Swinney talk like twice a week, same with me and Coach Venables, Coach Reed the same. It's a close-knit group. I know a lot of places claim to have a family-like atmosphere, but Clemson is really genuine, it's a genuine city and it really is a big family," he said.

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound corner thinks he can contribute a lot to the program and there are plenty of things for him to get excited about at Clemson.

"I think I'm a quality guy on and off the field, I'm someone that works hard and just someone that can lockdown the side of the field," he said.

"(I'm most excited for) playing in big-time games, playing on national TV and just playing for a big-time program and trying to make a name for myself."

Baker leaves Clemson fans with these final parting words:

"Go Tigers. I'm all in."
