UGA picked up commit No. 10 with cornerback Deandre Baker of Miami on Wednesday.

Baker is a 3-star from Northwestern High School in Miami. He is rated as the No. 102 overall prospect out of Florida.

The 5-foot-11, 175-pounder has been selected to play in the U.S. Army All-America Bowl. Baker also reported offers from Clemson, Tennessee, UCF and Florida International, among others.

UGA now has 10 commitments for 2015, including eight prospects who may play defense. Baker is this year’s first pledge at cornerback.

Kid can play. The 2015 defensive recruiting train has just begun.

Why would he stoop to go to garbage Can University?

Good size with a 4.5 speed. The coaching staff obviously see something, otherwise they wouldn't have offer.

A three star out of Florida is a prize. Another Florida guy heading North, and definitely not headed to GT!

Note to self, Self, never mention the size of a UGA recruit around these nuts.

Gary McCrae OLB 4 star from Randolph Clay committed as well today.  247 calls him a "no brainer".

And you are lame ( a nice word for what I am really thinking) if you try to run with that as a knock on his intelligence.

Watch the video.  The kid has a nose for the ball.  He is stuck to those receivers like glue.  He played man and takes on the receivers at the line.  There were a couple of plays thrown in there I don't understand why they were in the reel but other than that, I saw a ball hawk.  Hope he sticks.

@gtcaryd  Rusty Mansell reported today that Baker's dad is 6' 5" and Baker is almost a year younger than his classmates. In other words, he could add an inch or 2 before arriving in Athens.

@gtcaryd  note to gtcaryd - don't frame it the way you did.  You must not understand that if you frame it as a put down then you will get a backlash.  And also, you might want to note that you are on a recruiting story about the University of Georgia and that makes you an outsider.  Make snide remarks and you may not like the results.

@DawginCO Bobo is the man. Kid has a great 40 time and plays basketball.

@gtcaryd Aren't very many 6'4 corners walking around. I don't exactly know what you expect. Some of the best corners in the game are 5'10-5'11. Tall corners are nice but not a necessity in order to succeed.

@gtcaryd  there is difference between 5'9" 165 lbs and 5' 11" 175 lbs.  And an 17 year old is much more likely to grow an inch or so while he is at the school then a 18 going on 19 year old.  The kid could be 6'0 and 190 before the end of the season.  Wiggins was pretty small and hadn't grown very much, if any.  Plus he didn't take being taught a different technique very well either.    Sorry, just the facts.

Uh, I think he is still growing. Seriously?

@DawginCO @gtcaryd How is what i said a put down or a snide remark, 3-4 weeks ago all you heard was how CJP was getting rid of the rabble and was going to recruit big strong fast DB's. Don't you try to frame what i say, thanks to bucket for not responding like the little punk 1296. But hey his mom is probably changing his sheets right now anyway.

@gtcaryd Plus, he still has growing to do. Could easily grow another inch or two to be 6'0, 6'1 and could put on 10-20 pounds of muscle easily.

@Grant1296 Good Grief McFly, do i know more about your Coach than you? Well Tard, not very PC there junior.

Ole Will should have have just stayed at Texas and waited there instead of waiting to get fired at Gatorland.

@gtcaryd Oh and the video lists him as 6'0".  Just to keep you up to date.

@gtcaryd @DawgGoneIt we have corners bigger than your runningbacks down on the flats. Seems to me that all you guys recruit are 5'7, 160 pound backs. That's why they get tossed like rag dolls.

I'm sorry...card or whatever.....

@KeepOnSmilingWetWillie  Did the CeCe Jefferson thing just get buried?  Tweeting something and then removing it doesn't mean it wasn't ever said.  Someone has a record of it.

@DawgGoneIt @gtcaryd No kidding Einstein, I would say Gurley is as big as some of our LB's. Yea we recruit a lot of guys that are smaller than SEC prospects, and yall run that yapper about it. Delusion.

What's your problem with UGA getting a commitment from Baker???

I'll wait patiently for your response ....

Is he too big?????
