Jemarl Baker will apply for waiver to play at Arizona this season

Former Kentucky shooting guard Jemarl Baker is hoping to play college basketball this season.

This afternoon, Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports reported on Twitter that the Kentucky transfer and current Arizona Wildcat will “file a waiver with the NCAA with the hope of obtaining immediate eligibility for the 2019-20 college basketball season.”

Baker, who announced his transfer to Arizona on May 14, averaged 2.3 points and shot 31% from three in 9.1 minutes per game in 2018-19.

“I want to thank the Big Blue Nation for supporting me during my two years at Kentucky,” Baker said in a press release at the time of his decision to enter the transfer portal. “You are truly the best fans in the country and I’ve enjoyed my time here wearing the Blue and White.”

    Under what reason ?

    Reason, because Arizona probably won’t have a 2020-2021 season when the ncaa is finished.

    Unable to compete at former school? This stuff is getting out of hand!

    So he can play before they are put on probation

    Players should be able to transfer and play immediately regardless of reason so long as they don’t transfer within the same conference. I hope he gets his waiver. I hope Arizona loses every game they play next year. Sean Miller embodies everything that is wrong in college basketball.

      Then they should also be forced to pay back all the money the schools spent recruiting them etc.

      That’s a ridiculous statement the same could be said for every recruit we spent money on that didn’t pick us. You can’t hold kids hostage, if they want to leave who is the NCAA to say they can’t?

    In this scenario he should be able to transfer again & immediately play at a new school. I think I’ve seen that happen before . Can anyone recall that ?

      Has Arizona got sanctioned? I meant transfer to a school then it’s coach gets in trouble then the player can transfer again and play right away? I may be wrong
