Duke Transfer Joey Baker Commits to Michigan For Final Season

Published

As first reported by Sports Illustrated’s Jason Jordan, Duke transfer Joey Baker will transfer to Michigan for his final year of college basketball. Jordan reported the news on Friday night.

“[Baker] felt it provided the best opportunity to make an impact on a championship caliber team and felt Coach [Juwan] Howard could maximize his total game,” Jordan wrote in a tweet.

Baker spent four years at Duke under all-time great head coach Mike Krzyzewski. The North Carolina native appeared in 89 games for the Blue Devils, averaging 4.5 points this past season. Baker shot 43 percent from the field, 40 percent from three and 78 percent from the free-throw line. Baker came to Duke as a 5-star prospect, reclassifying to the loaded 2018 class with Zion Williamson, RJ Barrett, Cam Reddish and Tre Jones.

Michigan gains their second transfer from the portal as Baker joins Princeton transfer Jaelin Llewellyn.
