Based on the fact that the constituent quark model reproduces the recent lattice result on baryon-baryon repulsion at short distance and that it includes the quark dynamics with confinement, we analyze to what extent the quarkyonic modes appear in the phase space of baryons as one increases the density before only quark dynamics and hence deconfinement occurs. We find that as one increases the baryon density, the initial quark mode that appears will involve the d(u) quark from a neutron (proton), which will leave the most attractive (ud) diquark intact.
