Junior college standout point guard Kenny Chery has signed a national letter of intent with NIT champion Baylor.
Chery, a 6-foot guard who played the past two seasons at State Fair Community College in Missouri, signed Wednesday. Three post players signed with the Bears during the early period in November.
Chery, from Canada, averaged 16.4 points, 4.7 rebounds and 3.7 assists in 26 games last season, when he made 45 percent of his 3-pointers.
Baylor's point guard this season was senior Pierre Jackson, an All-Big 12 pick and the league's top scorer at 19.8 points a game. Jackson was a junior college transfer when he joined the Bears two years ago.
