Florida WR Ready For First Visit

Florida WR Ready For First Visit

Doug Baldwin is one of the top wide receiver prospects in the Panhandle this year and the Gulf Breeze High standout talked about the latest.

"We did OK this year," Doug Baldwin said. "We finished 4-6 and that wasn't as good as I expected. I finished with seven touchdowns but I don't know my catches and yards."

Baldwin, 5-foot-11 and 175 pounds, said he's now resting up getting ready for the recruiting process to heat up.

"Now that my season's over, I know this is going to get hard," he said. "I'm ready to start taking my visits. I'm definitely going to Stanford on December 8th. They've already offered. I'll be going to N.C. State, too. It'll likely be on December 1st. They haven't offered yet but they're likely to. I'm also trying to set something up with Louisiana Lafayette."

In addition to those three potential visits, Baldwin said he still talks with coaches from a few other programs.

"South Carolina still calls, Alabama State, Georgia Southern, schools like that," he said. "It's going to be a tough decision. I don't really have a leader right now and I might not make my decision until signing day."

Despite not having a favorite, the talented wide receiver knows what he'll be looking for in a college.

"Academics is first," he said. "I want to go to a school with a good engineering program. And secondly, I want the coaching staff to be like the one I had here at Gulf Breeze. Being comfortable around the coaches is real important."
