Tomahawk Nation spoke with Baxter Jr. last month:
“[Getting that offer] meant a lot because growing up, all I knew was FSU, and when I got the offer, I was extremely grateful because that’s my dream school.”
“Coach Marve said ‘this [is] the offer you wanted, and you got it.’
Coach YAC (David Johnson) told me to ‘keep grinding and keep working because I have the ability to be one of the best backs.’”
