ESPN 300 prospect lands with Southern

Wide receiver Chuck Baker (Slidell, La./Salmen), a one-time LSU commitment, has signed to play for Southern University, according to the school's official website. The 6-foot-2, 190-pound pass-catcher originally picked LSU in February 2012, but the two parted ways this November.

ESPN placed Baker in its top 300 and considers him the nation's 29th best WR. His evaluation states, "Baker is a physical specimen, to say the least, and looks great on the hoof -- big, thick, fast and physical. Baker lines up just about everywhere on offense and is so comfortable in the slot ... However, he can be just as effective on the outside."

Southern inked 27 total players for this recruiting cycle.
