Pac-12 recruiting received something of a shakeup on Friday as ESPN 300 safety Bishard "Budda" Baker (Bellevue, Wash./Bellevue) took to Twitter to announce his decommitment from Oregon.

Baker, ranked No. 122 in the ESPN 300 and the No. 7 safety, committed to the Ducks nearly one month ago and looked slated to play wide receiver. The 5-foot-9, 174-pound athlete had been a longtime lean to Oregon and it didn't shock anybody when he made his commitment to head coach Mark Helfrich and the Ducks in December.

The same cannot be said for Baker's decision on Friday, as his decommitment seemingly came out of nowhere. Baker declined comment about what went into his decision to pull away from Oregon, but said via Twitter that "the ducks are a great program just not the right program for me."
