Budda Baker is one of the most exciting players out west and is a coveted recruit by many schools. Baker is a 5'9", 174-pound stick of dynamite on the field who can make an impact in various ways.
One of the most explosive players in the country, Baker has outstanding athleticism and quickness. He has the instincts, range and transition explosiveness to play safety, along with the cover skills to hold his own as a cornerback.
Baker is fantastic with the football in his hands, which is why it will not be shocking to see him become a running back or receiver in college. He is also a great returner and can change the course of a game on special teams.
Baker has narrowed his list to five schools, according to Brandon Huffman of Scout.com (subscription required). He can't go wrong with any of his choices but will have to decide which school ultimately gives him the best chance to succeed as a player and person.
