Baker Prepared to Wait

The 6-0, 170-pound prospect from Osceola, Arkansas runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and has elusiveness in the open field. He is a top recruiting priority for the schools he is still hearing from, including Kansas State.

Wide receiver Cameron Baker is one of the top remaining prospects at his position in the South.

"I'd say there are six schools that I'm still thinking about," said Baker. "K-State, Memphis, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Colorado and Georgia Tech are all about even right now. I visited K-State recently, and I'm going to Memphis on January 12th."

What did Baker think of K-State?

"It was a good trip," he said. "I had a great time. I really didn't know what to expect, but they showed me a good time. There was a schedule, but it was sort of laid back. I sat down with the coaches and they talked about how they thought they would use me. They said they thought I could get on the field early if I worked hard, and they might try to use me in a variety of ways.

"I met a lot of the players and guys that have committed there. I think they're going to have some real good guys up there for the next few years."

In his senior season at Osceola, Baker caught 32 passes for 715 yards with 12 touchdowns. Don't expect a decision any time soon.

"One day I'll feel one thing, but the next I'll feel differently. I'm probably going to wait until Signing Day to make a decision. There are three other officials I could set up, and I'd probably like to do that. I should know more about where I'll go in the next few days."
