Jemarl Baker healthy and playing well in Kentucky Basketball practice

Baker is finally getting a chance to show what he’s made of.

It’s been a rough start to the college career of Jemarl Baker.

After coming to Kentucky as a highly-touted three-point shooter in the 2018 class, Baker missed all of his freshman season after undergoing knee surgery.

Then over the summer, Baker endured some swelling in the surgically-repaired knee that led to him missing all of the Bahamas trip. But as rough of a start as it’s been for Baker, it’s great to see him finally healthy and practicing with his teammate.

The Kentucky Basketball Twitter account posted some highlights from Saturday’s practice, which included Baker looking good:

Just seeing Baker out there and making plays is a great sight to see. He may not see many minutes this coming season for a loaded Kentucky team, but he still has a bright future ahead of him if he can just stay healthy and committed to becoming the best version of himself.

And who knows. Maybe he’ll find minutes as a knockdown shooter that Kentucky may not have enough of going into the season outside of Tyler Herro and Quade Green.

It also featured Ashton Hagans being the bulldog defender we saw in the Bahamas.

Hagans already looks like he can be the Marcus Smart of this team. It won’t be long until we get to see him terrorize Duke.
