Baker Checks Out Pitt, Louisville

Dorian Baker holds four offers. He talked about a couple of the junior day visits he took this month.

Pitt was one of the first to offer Cleveland Heights (OH) receiver Dorian Baker. They were also one of his first junior days visits for the offseason.

Baker also took a trip to Louisville, but it all started with a trip to Pitt a couple of weeks ago.

"At Pittsburgh, we went to Heinz Field, went to the basketball game--that was tight," Baker said. "I learned more about the coaching staff. I had a great time at Pitt."

It sounds like Pitt is in a good spot with Baker. He's being recruited by his respective position coach, Bobby Engram.

"They're a really good school, I definitely like the school," Baker said. "I'm just waiting to see some other schools before I have my mind set. I just want the chance to visit some other schools."

Northwestern and Purdue are a couple of those schools. Baker and his teammates will go to team passing camps at those schools.

Louisville is a school that Baker also visited this month. Baker said it's pretty humbling to be on the campus of one of the schools who won a BCS bowl.

"It was wonderful, a great experience," Baker said. "We went to a basketball game, got a campus tour, saw the practice facility and got to know the coaches more."

Baker doesn't have an offer from the Cards yet, but got a better idea of where he stands.

"I talked to their receivers coach, and he told me to come back for one of their spring practices," Baker said. "He said they're going to keep in touch with me, about an offer.

"It was a great experience. We got to see their rings too. They're going to have two rings--one for the Big East, and one for the Sugar Bowl."
