There has been a rumor circulating that four star offensive lineman Sam Baker (6-5, 330, 5.0) from Tustin, Calif., has committed to USC. He went on an unofficial visit this past weekend with a Tustin assistant coach to UCLA to see what the new coaching staff was about and to hear what direction the program was going.
Though Baker was liked what he heard it wasn’t enough for him stop his heart from beating cardinal and gold. Rivals100 were unable to reach the Baker household so we called longtime Tustin head coach Myron Miller for the scoop.
“I think he’s committed without being officially committed,” Miller said. “Sam will take his official visit to USC this weekend and when they offer him on his visit he will commit.”
“Sam has canceled all his trips except USC,” Miller said.
This USC class has been one of the best recruiting hauls in years. Baker going to Troy is definitely a case of the rich getting richer.
“Baker is the best offensive lineman I have ever coached in my 35 years of coaching,” Miller said. “He has all the skills you love to see in a lineman and he has an incredible work ethic. Sam squats 500 pounds.”
Rivals100 likes Baker a lot, too.
Baker is a member of the Rivals top 100 team. He is rated by Rivals as the nation’s number four offensive guard and as the number 13 rated player at any position for the state of California.
USC is back and with a vengeance.
