Baker is the explosive, power hitting, undersized (waistline wise) four star linebacker from Jacksonville who committed to Georgia recently. The Florida Times-Union named him Boys Athlete of the Year.
The article talks about his plans to add 10-15 pounds before this coming football season. That would put him his 6'0" frame at 210-215 pounds. In other words, it's reasonable that he would be at least 220 pounds by the 2010 season.
The article also talks about his accomplishments including:
-- 4A State Champ - Shot Put (I think he's the two time champ)
-- 4A State Runner-Up - Discus
-- All Conference - Weightlifting Team
-- Times-Union's All-First Coast boys track and field athlete of the year
When I picture a championship caliber shot putter or discus thrower, I envision a guy shaped like Reese Hoffa. Not a guy like Baker. He's an impressive kid physically, and the Florida paper says his academics are in great shape.
