2017 4-star point guard Jemarl Baker, Jr. has informed GoldenBearReport.com that he is asking out of his LOI (Letter Of Intent) to sign with Cal. He has declined to do an interview and he will be reopening his recruitment
Baker committed to Cal on December 31, 2015 and was primarily recruited by Cuonzo Martin and Yanni Hufnagel, both of whom are no longer with the program.
Since his commitment to Cal, Baker emerged as one of the best players in his recruiting class, as well as one of the top guards on the west coast. He helped lead his Roosevelt squad to a state title over the weekend as well.
As far as what this means for Cal, the incoming 2017 class now consists of Juhwan Harris-Dyson, Justice Sueing, and Grant Anticevich, all of whom have stated that they are still committed to Cal with Wyking Jones as head coach. Trevin Knell also remains firmly committed to Cal, but he will not be joining the team until 2019 once his LDS Mormon mission is complete.
Cal has three scholarships remaining, with just over two weeks until the spring signing period begins. Jones has been out on recruiting trips recently, but it will be his first test to see who he can bring in to fill those slots before the fall.
