Mizzou Adds from Within, Picks up Baker

Ryan Baker has announced that he has verbally committed to the University of Missouri. Baker currently swims for the Rec-Plex Sharks and Francis Howell High School.

Baker is a Missouri State High School Champion and NISCA All American in the 500 Freestyle. He is also a US Open qualifier and Region VII Sectional Record Holder in the 1000 Freestyle. He is considered the #1 Recruit on the Men’s Side coming out of the State of Missouri.

He will look to compete immediately in the 500, 1000, and 1650 Freestyle. His fastest times in those events are 4:29.28/9:11.47/15:32.03. While the 1000 will only help during dual meets, both his 500 and 1650 times would have put him just outside of scoring at last years SEC Championships.
