This one was more or less over when Duke offered Baker on September the 30th. It is widely known that Baker was high on the Blue Devils and what Mike Krzyzewski had to say since their initial contact.
Once again, Duke benefits from getting a young man who had watch them growing up and one who knew that would be his future home. Baker is considered to be a versatile small forward and he is asked to do it all for his high school team. Baker averaged 13.6 ppg for Team Felton over the summer.
Baker will now turn his attention to his high school season while making some trips to Cameron to see this years talented team. You can also look to him in making an effort to recruit other talented players to play alongside him.
