Kentucky guard Jemarl Baker has been actively seeking a transfer since the end of this past season. Based on his latest visit, there's a chance he could be leaving the SEC giants for another team of Wildcats.

According to Jake Weingarten of Stockrisers, Baker is making an official visit to Arizona this weekend. The former four-star shooting guard did not make a start in 28 appearances for the Wildcats last season.

Weingarten also reported that a handful of top basketball programs are "in the mix" for Baker. Among them are Arizona State, Marquette, and St. Mary's.

Baker averaged 9.1 minutes off the bench this season and scored 2.3 points per game. He wound up seeing some of his most extensive time on the court during the NCAA Tournament, logging a season-high 24 minutes against Abilene Christian in the Round of 64.

As a prospect in 2017, Baker was the No. 73 prospect in the country, the No. 15 shooting guard in the country, and the No. 11 prospect from the state of California.

Interestingly, most of the schools Baker has been linked to are located in or around his home state.

Will Baker be playing for a west coast team next year? Could he end up as a member of another Wildcats team?
