Kentucky Football: Yahtzee! 3-Star Wideout Dorian Baker Joins The 2014 Recruiting Class

Mark Zerof-USA TODAY Sports

Dorian Baker, a consensus 3-star out of Cleveland, is Kentucky's newest 2014 commit.

Kentucky strikes again on the recruiting trail in football, landing Dorian Baker for the 2014 recruiting class. Baker is a Rivals.com 3* wide receiver from Cleveland, Ohio, ranked 53rd in his position out of high school and the 20th best prospect in the state.

Baker chose Kentucky over schools like Illinois, Indiana, Marshall, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Toledo and Vanderbilt. His measurables are as follows:

  • Height: 6'3"
  • Weight: 205 lbs
  • 40-yard dash: 4.49 secs
  • Bench press max: 305
  • Super Squat Max: 310

Baker is a possession-type receiver the likes of which Kentucky currently lacks, for the most part. At 6'3", he's the kind of big receiver that UK desperately needs more of, and he and Blake Bone, who committed earlier this year, are beginning to fill UK's needs for bigger guys on the outside.

Other recruiting services have Baker ranked as follows:

Cleveland.com's David Cassilo has an article up on Baker:

There were a lot of appealing factors to Baker about joining the Wildcats.

"Coach [Mark] Stoops is an Ohio guy," said Cleveland Heights coach Jeff Rotsky. "Playing in the SEC was also encouraging."

Steve Jones of the Courier Journal also has a piece up, and says that Baker earned a UK offer after a standout performance in one of Kentucky's summer camps.
