Introducing Dalton Baker

Introducing Dalton Baker

This under the radar guy could end up being one of the better players.

Look at Dalton Baker's picture. Do you see that gash on his face? I asked him about it and he told me it happened on the football field. "I was going after a tackle and my helmet came off". That sounded to me like a tough guy. The camp at Juan Diego was unpadded and all the drills were offensive. They had offensive lineman catching passes, for heaven sakes. Dalton made a good impression there and told me he loves Defense. "I have always been a linebacker, growing up I have always loved Defense." That made an impression on me and is a really good sign. Whether he ends up at TE or OLB that is a great mentality to have.

Dalton came to the Utah State's padded camp and really got a chance to shine for the coaches. They ran him through drills and he played 7 on 7. Luckily it is up to some good coaches to decide whether he plays TE or OLB because it will be a tough decision.

There are a couple reasons why Dalton has flown under the radar. First he is from Payson not a hot bed for recruiting. Also he is obviously spending more time working out than on Twitter. If you google him you will find a HUDL highlight that is about a minute long. That is not because there weren't highlight but because he got locked out of his account and has not had a chance to upload and edit his tape. That sounds like a perfect fit to be an Aggie to me!
