Geo Baker responds to Cam Spencer leaving Rutgers basketball: ‘RU didn’t even get a chance to match the offer Cam was getting’

Cam Spencer made a shock move on Friday, entering the transfer portal. Given the importance of Spencer to Rutgers basketball last season, it was a surprise to see the guard ready to make a move.

And, former Rutgers basketball standout Geo Baker said that Spencer’s decision to leave came down to Name, Image and Likeness (NIL).

In fact Baker, who now heads up an NIL collective the Knight Society, believes that Rutgers didn’t even get a chance to coordinate a match for Spencer’s new NIL deal. On Saturday morning, Baker took to Twitter where he provided a detailed and thorough breakdown of everything going on with Spencer leaving the program.

In his most poignant tweet, Baker outlined what he heard about the NIL situation with Spencer:

“It’s my understanding RU didn’t even get a chance to match the offer Cam was getting. Which, if true, means he didn’t really want to stay anyway. There’s nothing you can do about that. But that doesn’t mean RU basketball is screwed on the NIL front.”

Here are Baker’s relevant tweets as they outline what happened (and didn’t happen) with Spencer as well as what this means for Rutgers on the NIL front:
