Kentucky adds to top-rated recruiting class with late commitment


Kentucky landed a commitment from former California signee Jemarl Baker on Tuesday.

Baker is a 6-foot-3 sharpshooter with a reputations for being one of the best catch-and-shoot players in the class. That fills the major weakness on Kentucky’s roster. But he’s also a borderline top 100 prospect. How much time will he see in a perimeter rotation that will be as loaded as usual?

Baker is the seventh member of Kentucky recruiting class that already includes five-star prospects Hamidou Diallo (who enrolled in January), Jarred Vanderbilt, P.J. Washington, Nick Richard and Quade Green and four-star guard Shai Gilgeous-Alexander.
