DB Baker picks up Florida, FSU offers

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Hallandale (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna Prep defensive back Adrian Baker has picked up offers from in-state schools Florida and Florida State. Baker said Florida extended the offer on Tuesday.

"The Florida offer means a lot," Baker said. "UF is a great school, has great tradition and also a winning culture."

The 6-foot-1, 165-pound athlete said Florida State just recently offered, and he likes the history and tradition the Seminoles offer as well.

"FSU has great tradition, great academics and athletic program," he said. "Also a great history and tradition. Also they have a great coaching staff."

Baker, who also holds an offer from Boston College, said the Gators and Noles are his top two schools with no leader. He is planning to make his final decision on Sept. 13, his birthday.
