Kentucky basketball received a big boost to its 2017 class this afternoon with the addition of four-star shooting guard Jemarl Baker. Baker is a 6’5” shooting guard from Eastvale, California and is the No. 87 player in Scout.com’s 2017 rankings.

He becomes the seventh commitment (including Hamidou Diallo) in Kentucky’s top-ranked 2017 class. Scout.com’s Evan Daniels joined KSTV to take a look at the addition of Baker to next year’s team and also discuss the latest with Kentucky’s remaining 2017 targets.
