With only one current corner commit in the '08 class, George Baker's visit this weekend to South Florida takes on much greater importance. Baker, 5'11 and 170 pounds gave an early commitment to Auburn but has taken a full slate of visits since. On Friday he arrived in Tampa with his mother for what looks like his final trip before signing day.
"It was a great visit." Baker added, "I loved it. Everything was great."
His host for the weekend was Bulls corner Quenton Washington.
"Quenton was real cool, we had a good time. He took me to some parties, we chilled in his dorm room and he talked to me about the program."
"He told me how it's a great place to live and play at. He said how the team is like a big family and everyone gets along. We talked about the staff and how much they help him."
Baker said he had a lot of questions and felt that Quenton gave him honest answers without trying to put pressure on him.
"He was real helpful, but he kept telling me to do what's best for me."
One of the highlights of the trip was USF's annual banquet. The recruits were on-hand and watched as the current team was honored for their 2007 accomplishments.
"Oh, the banquet was real nice."
"I liked how the players and coaches had a good chemistry."
Baker was not the only one who enjoyed the visit, he said his mom walked away thoroughly impressed.
"She liked it all. The coaches, the players, campus, facilities, she loved it all."
After visiting USF Baker says making a decision will be tough.
"Right now I got Auburn, Rutgers and South Florida all even right now. When I get home me and my mom are going to talk about all my options."
Although he's a soft commit to Auburn, Baker says that he'll make a final decision on where he'll play on February 6th, signing day. He also said this is most likely his final visit and he'll spend the next week and a half thinking it all over.
"It's going to come down to a feeling. The place I feel most comfortable, is the place I'll sign with."
