Prior to his visit to Mississippi State, we heard from multiple sources that Los Angeles (Calif.) Jordan defensive back Antwoine Baker was a near lock to commit to the Bulldogs. It has now been two weeks since the visit but Baker remains uncommitted.
Baker, 6-1, 170 pounds is a versatile defensive back with the ability to play corner or safety in college. At one point, Baker looked like a done deal for Nebraska but when the Huskers backed off, MSU became the new team to beat.
Most everyone, including us, expected Baker to commit on his visit (Nov. 17) but the athlete hasn't quite pulled the trigger.

"I still plan to commit to Mississippi State, they're my top school by far," Baker said. "I was ready to do it on my visit but the coaches told me they wanted to wait and talk to my parents first.
"They said they want to come in for a home visit and hopefully that will happen next week. I actually haven't heard from them since my visit but hopefully I can get something set up with them the next time they call.
Even after I commit, I think I still want to take one more visit to Washington State. They have been recruiting me hard and want me to visit later this month. I think that would be good to have something to compare MSU with but I still definitely plan to commit on the home visit whenever it happens."
