The son of a former NBA player, Baker Jr. never truly found his role with the Eagles. Despite displaying plenty of raw talent and athleticism—he was fifth on the team with a 37.5 inch vertical and was the only player to clear 12 feet on the Vertec—Baker Jr. played just 12 games as a sophomore. He shot a mere 26.3 percent from the field in limited action, averaging 1.3 points, a rebound, and 6.7 minutes per game.

Again, sign me up for taking a transfer from a major conference. In this case the ACC. Numbers do look poor. Sounds like he is athletic. Having his Dad in town on the Milwaukee Bucks staff can only be a major plus.
His numbers are definitely poor but he shouldn't have been there from the beginning so I'm not real worried. His frame reminds me of Tony Meier when Jeter recruited him. He had something like a 6-7" growth spurt his senior year and arrived in Milwaukee desperately needing to add weight. Their levels of athleticism of course are probably not very comparable.
Why Vin never took a redshirt year is beyond me but sitting out this next year can hopefully help him develop into his new role with his newer body frame.
