Baratti played multiple positions for Klein Oak amassing 1,267 yards rushing and another 1,837 yards passing while contributing 30 touchdowns to the Panther's offensive production.

Baratti claims eleven offers already from schools including Notre Dame, Texas Tech, West Virginia, and Arizona State to name a few. He is also being recruited to play multiple positions from quarterback to wide receiver to linebacker but Baratti says that Oregon is looking at him as a QB.
