Baker, a former 4-star receiver in the 2020 class appeared in 21 games in two seasons for the Crimson Tide. He's spent time playing wide receiver and special teams for the Tide, hauling in nine receptions for 116 yards and a touchdown for Alabama.

The 6-foot-1 receiver leaves the Tide with Traeshon Holden, Ja'Corey Brooks, Agiye Hall, Christian Leary, JoJo Earle and new transfer Jermaine Burton at the wide receiver position in 2022.

Kentucky is losing its second best receiver from 2021, Josh Ali, and Baker could provide the Wildcats a solid number two to 1300 yard receiver Wan'Dale Robinson. The Wildcats will return Will Levis at quarterback after he guided Big Blue to a 10-3 regular season in 2021.

A strong third year with Kentucky could put Baker on NFL Draft radars and could help the Wildcats challenge for an SEC East crown.
