Jabari Walker not returning to Colorado, plans to sign with agent
Colorado forward Jabari Walker won't return to the Buffaloes for his junior season, his father, Samaki Walker, told ESPN's Jonathan Givony.
"Jabari is fully committed to becoming a professional basketball player and has no intentions on returning to school," Samaki said. "He wants to sign with an agent and go all-in."
Jabari took a huge leap in his sophomore season, increasing his scoring average from 7.6 points per game as a freshman to 14.6. He also increased his rebounding from 4.3 boards per contest to 9.4 in Year 2. Jabari's improvements helped him land a first-team All Pac-12 spot during the 2021-22 campaign.
Colorado finished the season ranked fourth in the Pac-12 with a 21-12 record. Jabari led the team in points, rebounds, and blocks per game (0.7).
Jabari's Pro Day will reportedly be held in three weeks.
