Swedenburg Hopeful for Instate Offer
Baker Swedenburg Profile "I am hearing from Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Virginia, Northwestern and I have received some things from Georgia and Tennessee," said Baker. "I have visited Alabama and I have been to State and Ole Miss. I went to junior day at Mississippi State and I went to Ole Miss' spring game. Mississippi State's recruiting coach from my area has text messaged me and Nortwestern's coach has as well." A quartet of schools have already piqued Baker's interest. "Number one would be Mississippi State. Number two, I would say was Ole Miss. Number three would be Northwestern and number four would probably be Georgia," said Baker. Mississippi State - "I have grown up a Mississippi State fan. I live 30 minutes away from Starkville. I have been to all of the football games and a lot of baseball and basketball games there." Ole Miss - "Ole Miss seems really interested compared to some other colleges. They have a good recruiting program. I can really see how they get a lot of good players." Northwestern - "Their school is a really good academic school. They are also very interested in me. Their academic level is way up there." Georgia - "I have travelled to Georgia a good many times. I could see myself playing for Georgia. I really like the atmosphere there. They have a lot of hospitality and I really like the look of the school." It appears that Swedenburg may be in luck. Most of the schools he is interested in may be adding a punter in the 2008 signing class. "Some colleges have told me that they were going to sign a punter," said Baker. "Virginia, Northwestern, and Ole Miss told me they are going to sign a punter and Mississippi State told me that they may possibly sign one. I think they will all talk more about offering after the summer. I am going to all of their camps, so they can see me in person." Baker is not ruling any school out, but there is one school in particular he would really like to get an offer from. "Best case scenario for me would be if Mississippi State offered after the summer," said Baker. "To me that would be the best. I have looked at their academic list and they have what I want to major in."
