Lewisville, Texas linebacker Lewis Baker ended his recruiting process today when he announced publically in a special chat on ESPN.com that he had committed to Oklahoma.
Baker, a four star prospect from Hebron High School in Lewisville who had originally committed to Texas last summer, visited Norman last weekend and chose the Sooners over Notre Dame and Texas.
"I just got off the phone with Coach Stoops - I'm going to be a Sooner," said Baker in the ESPN chat hosted by recruiting guru Tom Lemming.
"I see myself just going a long ways and being a great player," noted Baker, who compared his game to Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis. "Coach Venables and Stoops will help me become a great player."
When asked in the chat why he chose Oklahoma Baker replied, "They win."
