Baker’s recruiting continues despite injury

December 11, 2009

Darryl BakerJeffersonville’s Darryl Baker sustained a season-ending injury last month during a pre-season practice, but the list of colleges eying the budding star continues to grow.

The freshman has already taken unofficial campus visits to Michigan State and Ohio State, and he’s twice been a guest in Bloomington for Indiana’s ‘elite camp’ for potential recruits.

And Baker will be the guest of Butler University this weekend, where he’ll take in the Butler-Ohio State game on Saturday afternoon.

Baker was diagnosed in late November with a broken knee cap, although doctors told the family no tendon, ligament or joint damage occurred.

“He’s handled the injury like a man,” said Theo Moore, the player’s uncle. “He’s trying to eat right, trying to make sure that when he starts rehab he’s in the best possible shape considering the circumstances. He’s anxious to get back going.”

Baker, who is receiving letters and questionnaires from colleges across the country, is definitely out for the entire high school season but hopes to return late in the spring for AAU.

Jeffersonville freshman Darryl Baker injured

November 13, 2009

Darryl BakerDarryl Baker, Jeffersonville’s often touted freshman, suffered a major setback Tuesday in practice.

The 6-foot-2 guard broke a bone in his right leg and is out indefinitely, according to Red Devil coach Tim LaGrange.

“(Baker) basically went up to catch an alley-oop and another player went up to contest it,” LaGrange explained. “(The other player’s foot) hit (Baker’s) leg just below the knee cap. It wasn’t a major collision at all. It had to be like the perfect storm. It really was a freak thing.”

Baker, who was set to undergo surgery Thursday, will miss a considerable amount — if not all — of the 2009-10 high school season.

“There’s no definite word on his likelihood to return,” LaGrange said. “I can say with all probability that it’s very doubtful (he’ll return this season). “We’ve had really good practices and I’m heartbroken for Darryl. He worked so hard and had a great attitude.”
