College career

Baker signed with Georgia on national signing day, despite speculation that he would sign with Texas based on a tweet he sent out the night before. As a true freshman at Georgia in 2015, Baker played in 11 games. During the 2016 season, Baker was injured in a game against Vanderbilt. He recovered, but was later injured against Georgia Tech. Following the 2017 season, Baker was named to the Second Team All-SEC. Baker considered declaring for the 2018 NFL draft, but he ultimately elected to return to school for his senior year.

Baker was one of the best defensive backs in college football in his senior season. He allowed only 175 yards and a 40.2 NFL passer rating to opposing receivers in 2018, which both ranked in the top 5 of all draft eligible cornerbacks, min. 300 coverage snaps. He was named a consensus 2018 All-American and won the Jim Thorpe Award, awarded to the best defensive back in college football. Over his entire 4 year tenure at Georgia, Baker only allowed one touchdown. Baker entered the 2019 NFL Draft as one of the best defensive back prospects.
