Baker's Stock on the Rise

Outside linebacker Ryan Baker has seen his stock soar in recent weeks. LSU is just one of many schools that have turned up the heat on the Blountstwon, Florida prospect.

Baker currently holds offers from schools like LSU, Florida, Clemson, Alabama, Arkansas, Ole Miss and South Florida among others. In a report earlier this week Baker mentioned that his top school was Clemson. He has since backed off that comment.

"Favorite? No, I'm still open," Baker said. "The schools I'm really looking at are Clemson, LSU, Alabama, Florida and Arkansas. I just like those five a lot. I just want to get out to those schools and see what it's like before I commit. I need to find out what kind of playing time they're going to have.

"I think I'm going to visit LSU sometime, not this week but the week after that. That's one place I'm really looking forward to seeing. They put a lot of talent into the NFL and they're contending for a national championship just about every other year."
