LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky has announced the signings of guard Jemarl Baker and forwards Kevin Knox and Jarred Vanderbilt.
    
Kentucky's signings come as guard Hamidou Diallo faces Wednesday's deadline on whether he'll stay in the NBA draft or return to school after not playing as a mid-year enrollee.
    
Knox, a 6-foot-9 All-American from Tampa, Florida, averaged 28.5 points and 11.3 rebounds per game last season after winning a gold medal with Team USA at the FIBA Under-17 World Championships. Vanderbilt, another 6-9 All-American, averaged 28.5 points, 13.4 rebounds and 8.8 assists per contest for Victory Prep Academy in Houston.
    
The 6-4 Baker, from Corona, California, is considered a combination guard and consensus four-star prospect. He averaged 17.1 points, 4.1 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game with 94 3-pointers last season.
