Duke transfer Jeremy Roach has committed to Baylor, he announced Sunday on social media.

Roach spent the last four seasons as the Blue Devils' starting point guard, averaging 11.3 points, 3.1 assists, and 2.4 boards. The 22-year-old arrived in Durham as part of a loaded recruiting class that featured future NBAers Mark Williams and Jalen Johnson.

As a sophomore, Roach played a key role in Duke's run to the Final Four, tallying 11.8 points, four assists, and 1.4 steals per contest during the NCAA Tournament.

Roach is coming off his best collegiate campaign, averaging a career-high 14 points on 46.8% shooting en route to All-ACC third-team honors. He also finished sixth in the conference in free-throw percentage (84.4%) and 15th in assists (114).

Baylor went 24-11 last season, including an 11-7 mark in Big 12 play.
