Clemson Grad Transfer Adrian Baker Schedules Two Visits

    Clemson grad transfer Adrian Baker has scheduled two visits with Power Five schools. He will have one year of eligibility left upon transfer.

    Two programs are currently set to receive a visit from Clemson cornerback Adrian Baker.


    Several teams have been in contact with soon-to-be former Clemson Tigers cornerback Adrian Baker. Baker, who was sidelined during Clemson’s championship run last season because of a torn ACL, plans to graduate this semester and finish his college playing career with a new team. Due to NCAA graduate transfer rules, he’ll be able to play immediately and has one year of eligibility remaining.

    His prospects for football after Clemson are beginning to take shape, as he currently has two visits lined up with Big 12 schools: Oklahoma State and Texas Tech, according to Ryan Bartow of 247Sports.

    The Cowboys will host him on March 4, while the Red Raiders will get their chance to impress him a week later on March 10.

    “Texas Tech has been saying they will use me how Clemson did my sophomore year,” Baker said. “I talk to (Red Raiders assistants David Gibbs and Karl Scott).”

    Dabo Swinney, who has cleared his release, plucked Baker out of South Florida as part of the 2013 recruiting class. He was ranked as high as the No. 197 overall recruit in the country.

    Wherever he lands, it’ll be an opportunity for a fresh start. Baker’s time with Clemson never materialized into more than a backup role and handful of starts, which can largely be attributed to the aforementioned injury. He would have likely seen an increased role in 2016, continuing the trend of building upon his prior season.
