Former Alabama wide receiver, Javon Baker, announced via Instagram that he will be transferring to the University of Central Florida. Baker will be joining former Auburn head coach Gus Malzahn in Orlando.
Baker was a four-star receiver out of Georgia in the 2020 recruiting cycle. After two seasons with the Tide, Baker decided it was best to enter the portal and explore other opportunities. He did not see a ton of playing time through two seasons. He posted nine catches for 116 yards and a single score in his career at Alabama.
Initially, Baker had intended on going to Kentucky before announcing that was no longer the case on May 27. Just two weeks later, he decided on the Golden Knights. There, he will likely see immediate playing time.
