Arizona announced on Thursday that Kentucky transfer Jemarl Baker has received a waiver and will be eligible immediately for the Wildcats.

According to the announcement, Kentucky supported Baker’s bid for immediate eligibility.

As a redshirt freshman, Baker averaged 3.1 points in just over nine minutes. A native of California, Baker has a reputation for being a shooter and should be able to contribute minutes alongside Nico Mannion and Josh Green on Arizona’s perimeter.
