Four-star shooting guard Jemarl Baker committed to Kentucky this afternoon, joining a group of guards that will be made up of fellow freshmen Quade Green, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Hamidou Diallo. Baker was originally signed with California and head coach Cuonzo Martin, but was granted a release following Martin’s departure to Missouri. Baker is a rated as the 19th-best shooting guard in the country and as the 65th-best overall player by ESPN.
