Baker attended Bellevue High School in Bellevue, Washington. He played safety and running back in football and also ran track. As a senior, he was named the Seattle Times High School Athlete of the Year. Baker was rated as a four-star recruit and was ranked among the top safeties in his class. He originally committed to the University of Oregon to play college football, but flipped to the University of Washington the night before National Signing Day.
As a true freshman at Washington in 2014, Baker started all 14 games, recording 80 tackles, one interception and one sack. Following his freshman campaign, Baker was named a Freshman All-American by USA Today.

On January 3, 2017 Baker announced his decision to forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft.
