Friday, June 14, 2013
Ben Baxter has given a verbal commitment to play for SMU. Baxter, who lives in Flower Mound, Texas, also visited Houston, Arkansas, Indiana and Notre Dame.
Baxter said he liked the feel of the SMU campus, and its academic reputation also played a role in his college decision. Baxter attends a charter school in Lewisville, Texas called iSchool High.
“I believe that Coach (Josh) Gregory and Coach (Jason) Enloe are the best coaches in the nation and ones that I fully trust to improve my game,” Baxter said.
Baxter recently finished eighth at the AJGA’s Goodman Networks Junior at Traditions. He had three top-15 finishes in AJGA events in 2012, and finished T-3 at the 2011 Preseason Junior at Brickhaven.
