The annual East vs. West match-up will be televised live on NBC at 1:00 p.m. EST and will feature the nation's top 90 high school football players.
"Baker is a talented athlete whose leadership and teamwork qualities have made him a standout at Bellevue High School," said Mark Davis, deputy assistant Secretary of the Army for Marketing. "Only the strongest wear the Army colors, and are proud to welcome all of the U.S. Army All-American Bowl players and commend each of them on their selection."
The 5-foot-10, 177-pounder is rated as a Scout.com four-star prospect, the No. 4 safety prospect nationally.
Baker, the top overall prospect in the NW, is one of the most versatile players in the West and could be ranked a top five prospect at corner as well as running back. We like him at safety and feel his overall athleticism and play making skills should allow to play early in his college career. He doesn't have a typical safety frame, but he plays bigger than his size, has very good speed and is a very dangerous returning punts/kicks as well.
For more than 13 years, the U.S. Army All-American Bowl has been the nation's premier high school football game, serving as the preeminent launching pad for America's future college and NFL stars. Adrian Peterson and Andrew Luck made their national debuts as U.S. Army All-Americans.
