It is shaping up to be a very special year for Oklahoma State. They have a proven arm under center with Mason Rudolph, an electric running back with Justice Hill, and a receiving corps that reads like a laundry list of freak athletes. Oh, and coach Mike Gundy has been pretty high on the defense as well, especially up front and at linebacker.
If the Pokes have one question mark, you could say it is the secondary. They have some talented defensive backs, but it is a young group a little short on depth. However, the Cowboy’s secondary just got a major boost. Clemson corner back Adrian Baker announced that he is trading in one shade of orange for “America’s brightest orange”.
Former Clemson CB and graduate transfer Adrian Baker told ESPN he will play his final season at Oklahoma State.

Baker will come to Stillwater as a graduate transfer; making him eligible to play immediately. In 2015, Baker played in 13 games for the Tigers, including three starts, and he recorded 3 interceptions. Unfortunately, an spring ACL injury sidelined him for the 2016 season.
Baker knows what it’s like to play for a National Championship, and he thinks he sees another.
“I think they have an opportunity to compete for a national championship,” Baker told ESPN’s Jake Trotter. “I’m hoping I can come in there and help.”
