Baxter will be choosing from Florida, Texas A&M, Miami and Texas. Currently, the Longhorns are the predicted favorite on 247Sports.com
He is listed at 6-foot-1, 215 pounds and ranked as the fourth-best running back and 48th prospect overall in the class of 2023 by the 247Sports composite rankings.
Baxter rushed for 1,718 yards and 26 touchdowns as a junior. He made a verbal commitment to Florida State on July 29, 2020, but backed away from that pledge on April 15, 2021.
The scouting report from 247Sports Andrew Ivins describes Baxter as “a potential workhorse or feature back…Produced right away as a junior averaging just over 8.5 yards per carry while facing stiff competition week in and week out.”
