Northwestern defensive back Deandre Baker accepted his invitation Monday to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio. Baker, a University of Georgia commit, is one of 12 South Florida players that are expected to participate in this season’s game which will be played Jan. 3 at the Alamodome in San Antonio.
Baker has been a key player in Northwestern’s return to the playoffs this season.
“It’s great to be able to represent my community and my friends on this kind of a stage,” Baker said. “It’s going to be cool to join some great names that have been in this game.”
