A Numbers Game

Brook Hill HS ATH Tyler Baker (Bullard, TX) didn't sign on Signing Day, but that doesn't mean he's not wanted. Baker is still receiving increasing interest from a number of schools, including Boise State. He says he's looking at all of his options and will commit should the right offer come along. He spoke to BroncoCountry.com about his interest in Boise State and his recruitment thus far.

Brook Hill HS ATH Tyler Baker (Bullard, TX) didn't sign with a particular school on Signing Day and is still receiving interest from a number of schools, including Boise State. He says he's looking at all of his options and will commit should the right offer come along.

"I took an official to Army and I'm still talking to a few other schools," he said. "Ole Miss gave me a grayshirt offer and I'm still talking to Arizona State, Boise State, and Fresno State as well. It's a numbers thing right now for most of those schools."

Baker says he can't recall which Boise State coach he spoke to, but was told he'd know more about the possibility of an offer within two weeks. Right now, Boise State likes Baker at WR.

"They called and said it was down to me and another kid," Baker said. "They said they'd let me know in a couple weeks."

The talented ATH believes he fits the Boise State "team" concept. He likes that Boise State is notorious for getting the most out of their available talent.

"Boise does a lot with guys that aren't four and five star players," he stated. "They really get the most out of their players. You know, they're top ten almost every year. They have to be doing something right."

Tyler played at a small HS, but says he really wants to go toe-to-toe with top competition on the college level.

"I'm looking for good competition. I played at a small college prep school, but I believe I can play against the best," he said. "I also want to play for good coaches that can get the most out of me as a player. Basically, coaches and competition is what I'm looking at right now."

To say that Baker was the "go to guy" for the Brook Hill offense would be an understatement. He was the team leader in passing yards, rushing yards, and total yards in what was an eventful 2010 season as they finished with a record of 11-3.

"We lost in the championship game," he said. "It's frustrating since I had the flu all week and I had just gotten back from an injury. Overall, I'd say I'm still happy with how our season went."

Baker (5'10, 188, 4.46) says he can play all over the field and there's nothing he can't do when it comes to football.

"There's nothing I can't do. I can throw it, run it, catch it, just everything," he said. "I'll do anything you need me to do. I'm good with the ball in my hands, but I'm just as good on defense too," he added.
