While playing alongside two division recruits in his class at Mundelein High School with Conor Enright (Drake) and Scottie Ebube (Southern Illinois), Trey Baker has often been an under the radar player in the 2021 class. However, over the course of his junior season and last summer playing with All In Athletics, Baker emerged as a scholarship level talent himself. 

On Monday, the 5’10” point guard made his commitment to Maryville University. Maryville and head coach Jesse Shaw had initially offered Baker a scholarship back in the end of December. The St. Louis school has consistently recruited the state of Illinois and Chicago area well over the past few years. Their roster has several Illinois natives including Davis Walker, Gary Pendleton, Jaelon Hood, and Amir Spann. 

In his commitment post on twitter, Baker stated “This journey moving towards my next chapter in life has been more than a blessing and I couldn’t be more thankful for those in my life…To my coaches at the AAU and high school level, and my teammates thank you for continuing to push me to become the player I am today and deepening my greater love for the game…With that being said I’m blessed and extremely excited to announce my commitment to Maryville University!”

Maryville is getting a skilled point guard with great handle and shiftiness with the ball in his hands. Baker changes and speeds incredibly well to be able to beat defenders off the dribble with ease. He is also a quality shooter from the mid-range and beyond the arc who has the ability to create his own shot.
