Top 100 SG Jemarl Baker requests release from Letter of Intent with Cal

Scout's 87th ranked 2017 prospect, Jemarl Baker, will soon be on the market, as the four-star shooting guard has requested a release from his Letter of Intent with Cal.

Jemarl Baker has requested a release from his Letter of Intent with California and will soon be back on the market, he informed Scout.

The 6-foot-3, 175-pound shooting guard from Corona (Calif.) Roosevelt is Scout’s 87th ranked prospect in the 2017 class.

Baker released the following statement to Scout:

I committed to Cal as a high school sophomore and signed with the Golden Bears last fall primarily based upon my close relationship with Cuonzo Martin and his ability to develop me not only as a player but also as a person.

Unfortunately that possibility no longer exists for me at Cal due to Coach (Cuonzo) Martin deciding to accept the Missouri job.

Due to those factors I just listed, I have decided to re-open my recruitment and explore all possible opportunities and options. This is in no way a reflection on Cal as an institution or program. Cal is a tremendous school with a historic basketball tradition.

I just feel that due to the current circumstances, I need to consider all my options. I appreciate people understanding the current situation I am in.

Scout will have more on Baker’s second recruitment when he receives his full release. Top Stories
