Canfield DB Is One To Watch

Canfield High School's Sean Baker is one of Ohio's many quality defensive back prospects this year. Baker was a key player in Canfield's run to the state title game, putting up 80 tackles and three interceptions on the year. He is already getting attention from top area programs.

The state of Ohio is loaded at the safety position this coming season. One player who is projected to get attention from major colleges is Sean Baker of Canfield High School.

Baker has already received interest from several programs in the region.

"I have been down to Ohio State 2 or 3 times," he said. "I was invited down to a practice before the bowl. I was down for the Northwestern game. Notre Dame, UConn, Wisconsin, and Illinois have all been in contact."

Right now, Baker has three favorites on his mind.

"Ohio State, Penn State and Notre Dame are my favorites," he said.

Baker plans on camping at each of those schools.

"I went to Penn State last summer for camp," he said. "I plan on going to camps at Ohio State, Penn State and Notre Dame."

Baker has a bench press of 300 pounds and currently stands at 6-1, 190.

"I may have some growing to do yet," he said. "My dad is 6-4 and my brother is 6-3. I am working on my speed. I start speed training next week."

Baker is primarily a DB but had to step in at running back in the state championship game. He gained 165 yards in the game.

"I only played running back in the state championship game," he said. "I did not play there this year. Angelo got hurt and I had to step in. I knew the plays but that was about it."

Baker had three interceptions and nearly 80 tackles on the year.
