"Everybody is interested," Jeffersonville coach Steve Cooley said. "We've sent his highlight film out to a lot of different places and he's (already) been offered by Indiana, Kentucky and Louisville. Quite a few people are interested in him."
Cooley said that Kentucky is recruiting Baker as a quarterback/athlete while Louisville is recruiting him more as an athlete. Indiana is recruiting Baker as a quarterback.
"The (schools) that run the spread-option with an athletic quarterback are recruiting him as a quarterback and some of the other schools are recruiting him as a quarterback/athlete," said Cooley. "And some schools are recruiting him as just an athlete. He's a really good basketball player. He can dunk from anywhere. He's very marketable and he's a great kid."
While Baker is a talented quarterback at the high school level (Baker passed for 1,582 yards and 21 touchdowns as a junior, while rushing for 1,197 yards and 19 touchdowns) his coach believes his future lies at safety at the college level.
"He can be a 6-2, 230-pound safety that could come down in the box and be the eighth guy down there and be a great run defender," said Cooley. "He could be a good cover guy. I think he'll end up being a safety down the road."
Baker has made some recent visits to Indiana, Louisville and Kentucky. "He was at Louisville's spring game Friday night and he went to Kentucky's spring game on Saturday," Cooley said. "He's very much interested in Louisville. It's a local place but I think he's interested in pretty much everybody that is interested in him. He hasn't narrowed anything down."
