Baker wasn't home when we called, but did grab this tidbit from his mother, Cyndee Baker.
"Cody will be home around 8 p.m.," she said. "He's at practice right now, practicing for the Coca Cola all-star game. He committed to Texas Tech today and is very excited."
Asked what some of the reasons her son gave regarding his oral commitment to the Scarlet and Black, Mrs. Baker said, "He wanted to stay in Texas. And he's always wanted to go there. He feels like he has a good chance of playing at Texas Tech and several friends of his already go there. He's just so excited."
We'll have more on the latest Tech pledge straight from Cody soon...
