Is Cali DB ready to pull the trigger

When we last caught up with Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan defensive back Antwoine Baker just a week ago, he told us he had made up his mind on where to commit and was going to announce for Mississippi State when the Bulldogs came in for a home visit. Have those plans changed?
Baker, 6-1, 170 pounds visited MSU two weeks ago and even before the trip, the corner said he was leaning towards committing on the visit. When we talked with Baker following the trip, he said he didn't commit only because the coaches wanted to wait and talk with his family on an in-home visit.
Coach Holliday at MSU will be coming over to the Baker house this Friday but according to Jordan coach Elijah Asante, his standout DB is no longer planning to make a decision.
"Antwoine wants to take a few more trips and wait to make his decision in early January," Asante said. "I just talked to Coach Holliday earlier today and he's looking forward to coming out and meeting the family Friday night but I don't think Antwoine will be committing. He really wants to take a couple of trips first before committing anywhere.
"He wants to visit Nevada and DeWayne Walker at UCLA came by the school and I think Antwoine is intrigued by UCLA quite a bit as well. He doesn't have a date with Nevada but it could be in the next two weekends. Coach Walker was here for a couple of hours watching film and I think he's pretty interested in Antwoine.
"I'll be at the home visit tomorrow night as well and things could obviously change but at this point, I would be surprised if Antwoine makes a commitment. He still loves Mississippi State but that was the only trip he took and I think he wants to have something to compare it to."
