Bishard 'Budda' Baker picks up USC offer

ESPN 150 safety Bishard Baker (Bellevue, Wash./Bellevue) estimates it took about a month for a few generic pieces of USC mail to turn into a consistent stream of handwritten letters.

On Tuesday afternoon, the increase in contact culminated to a scholarship offer.

“They started sending me a whole bunch of handwritten letters, so I wanted to see what would happen,” Baker said. “It came slow, but then it picked up.”
