    Duke transfer guard Jeremy Roach has officially signed with Baylor after he committed on April 21.

    Roach figures to be a perfect veteran addition for Scott Drew, who recently turned down the Kentucky job to remain at the Big 12 school.

    Baylor is bringing in five-star guards VJ Edgecombe of Long Island Lutheran (NY) and Rob Wright III of Chipotle’s national champion Montverde (FL) Academy, both of whom played in Sunday’s Jordan Brand Classic at Barclays Center.

    “Jeremy, obviously, has no shortage of experience playing a big role in some big-time games over his career,” Drew said. “An all-conference performer in the ACC and a team captain for multiple seasons, he is someone that will add to our team on and off the floor, and our fans will love watching him compete on a nightly basis.”

    Roach averaged 14.0 points, 3.3 assists and 2.5 rebounds as a junior at Duke.

    Duke’s Tyrese Proctor and Caleb Foster are returning to campus, while Kyle Filipowski and Jared McCain declared for the NBA Draft. Roach is one of seven players transferring out.

    The Blue Devils have the No. 1 recruiting class led by Cooper Flagg, who former Duke star Austin Rivers says should be part of the U.S. Olympic team.
