Dame has been a headache defensively & be a lethal force on the offensive end!

A fast-rising four-star prospect, each of Baugh’s 17 offers have rolled in since May 1, with invitations stemming from the likes of Vanderbilt, Auburn, Florida, TCU, SMU, Miami, LSU, and Georgia, among numerous others.
With the Longhorns now in the mix, Baugh joins elite Arden (N.C.) Christ School product Jalen Lecque and Philadelphia (Pa.) Imhoptep Institute standout Dahmir Bishop as uncommitted combo guards with a Texas offer in hand.
Standing at 6’3, 185 pounds, Baugh is at his best when attacking the basket as an explosive finisher, and his comfort pushing the pace in transition is apparent. He’s ranked as the nation’s No. 111 player, No. 12 combo guard, and as the No. 4 player in Tennessee, per the 247Sports Composite.
Just weeks ago, he was ranked as low as No. 226 nationally.
