Baker selects Purdue over Notre Dame

After months of deliberation,
Super Prospect defensive lineman HREF="http://interact.fansonly.com/recruiting/pros_card.cfm?recruit_id=561&dbyear=03&sport=football">Ryan Baker of Indianapolis-Bishop Chatard, Ind., has signed with the href="http://interact.fansonly.com/recruiting/searchrecruit.cfm?sport=fo
otball&dbyear=03&school_name=pur">Purdue Boilermakers over Notre Dame.

Baker made a commitment to the Irish in late January, but had second thoughts and didn't sign with the school. Considered the top player in Indiana, he played on four state championship teams during his career at Chatard --- three in football and one in basketball. Among many other offers were Michigan, Oklahoma, Boston College, Florida, Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Kentucky, West Virginia, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan State and Stanford.
