In what has to be one of the more interesting storylines of the 2014 recruiting season, Budda Baker of Bellevue, Wash. has de-committed from Oregon and has reopened up the recruiting process. Baker posted a tweet from his personal Twitter account Friday to break the shocking news.

I have decommited from Oregon an decided to reopen my recruitment Coach H an the ducks are a great program just not the right program for me


That was the tweet sent out Friday around 2:25 pm that sent shockwaves through the Pac-12 Conference. Not only does it mean Baker is looking around at other schools, but he has apparently ruled out the possibility of re-committing to the Ducks.



Dawgman's Kim Grinolds has confirmed an earlier tweet from Sports Radio KJR's Dave 'Softy' Mahler that Baker is in fact taking an official visit to UW this weekend.

Unconfirmed rumors have also surfaced in the past half-hour that Baker has already narrowed his recruiting list back down to two schools - Washington and UCLA.

We'll have more on this breaking story as it develops.
