Clemson defensive back Adrian Baker will be on the move in search of a new place to call home. According to a report from TigerNet, Baker has decided to transfer away from Clemson.
Baker is scheduled to graduate from Clemson this spring, which means he will be eligible to transfer to any other FBS program and be able to play this fall, should he land at another FBS school.
Baker did not play during the 2016 season after suffering a torn ACL during spring football practices. Had he been healthy, Baker was expected to compete for a starting job in the secondary. Baker recorded 13 tackles and intercepted two passes in 2015 to help Clemson to an ACC championship and a spot in the College Football Playoff national championship game. Both of Baker’s interceptions came in a game against division rival Florida State to help the Tigers remain on top of the ACC and the national polls.
“When I got hurt, the thing that hurt me most was that I felt like I was finally starting to turn as a player and I felt like I was going to have a good year,” Baker said to TigerNet. “Next year, I feel like I’m going to have a good year.”
