One of the west’s top shooting guards in 2017 is 6-foot-3, 175-pound Jemarl Baker from Eastvale (Calif.) Roosevelt.
Baker’s best quality is his shooting ability, as he can drill three-pointers off the catch while he’s also a threat to knock down one or two dribble pull-ups.
“My game is getting better,” Baker said. “I’ve been working on my midrange. I’m trying to be an all-around player defensively.”
“Cal, USC and SDSU,” Baker listed, before breaking down what he likes about all three programs.
California: “I really like the coaching staff; it’s a real family atmosphere around there.”
USC: “I really like the coaching staff there too. I like the tradition at USC and I like the location since I’m from the L.A. area.”
San Diego State: “My sister went there so I’ve been down there a lot the last few years. I really like it down there; the atmosphere is crazy.”
Baker is still getting a feel for what he’s looking for in a school, but has an idea of when he’ll make a decision.
“Probably in the spring,” Baker said.
