Mike Baker, the three-star quarterback from Fresno (Calif.) Central, discussed his offers list, the schools he is still waiting to hear from and his big goals for the season.

Fresno (Calif.) Central quarterback, Mike Baker talked about his three offers.

“I have received offers from San Diego State, Eastern Michigan and Northern Arizona,” said Baker.

“Right now I am leaning toward Eastern Michigan. I really like their offensive coordinator coach. They also have a pretty competitive schedule. I have a good chance to start there for three or four years, and I would be going in a true freshman, which would also give me a good shot at going to the next level,” said Baker.

Baker will be taking his first official visit to Eastern Michigan, on Oct. 21st.

“I have never been to Michigan or seen the school up-close, so I am really looking forward to my visit,” said Baker.

Some of the other programs Baker has been in contact with are waiting to see him in action this season before extending him an offer.

“I have also been in contact with Arkansas and Arizona. I have talked to both schools about setting up official trips this fall. I have also been in contact with the coaches at Oregon. All three of those schools are waiting to watch a couple more games this season before deciding to offer me,” said Baker.

In addition to those programs, Baker would still like to capture the attention of a couple other schools this season.

“I would still like to hear from UCLA and Texas. UCLA, because I really like their program and the tradition behind it, and Texas because they run a spread offense and a ‘under center’ style offense, which is similar to what we run at my high school,” said Baker.

Baker discussed what he is hoping to find in a football program.

“I am looking for a program where the coaching staff is going to stay put. Also, somewhere that I feel I will fit in with both the players and in the school environment,” said Baker.

In Central’s game on Friday night, Baker led his team to a 42-28 victory against Visalia (Calif.) El Diamante. Baker contributed to the win by scoring three touchdowns, and completing 14 passes, totaling 244-yards.

Baker discussed his goals for the season, “This season my goals are to achieve an All-League title, and to also receive the All-State quarterback title again, for the third year in a row.”
