Back on April 17, the soon-to-be redshirt sophomore announced that he was transferring from the school.
“I want to thank the Big Blue Nation for supporting me during my two years at Kentucky. You are truly the best fans in the country and I’ve enjoyed my time here wearing the Blue and White,” he said in a press release. “However, after talking with Coach Cal, the staff and my family, I feel it’s in my best interest to continue my academic and basketball career elsewhere. I’ve made life-long relationships with my brothers and the staff at Kentucky and have improved so much as a player. I’m thankful for the opportunities it’s given me to be a part of this historic program.”
In 28 games for the Wildcats last season, the 6-foot-4 guard managed 64 points, 15 rebounds, and 12 assists, including 13 total 3-pointers.
Due to NCAA transfer rules, Baker will have to sit out next season before suiting up again in 2020-21.
