Jabari Walker heading to the NBA Draft Combine

·1 min read

Colorado Buffaloes star Jabari Walker made the decision to leave college early and head for the NBA draft.

Well, it looks more and more as if Walker made the right choice. On Tuesday, Shams Charania of The Athletic revealed the players going to the NBA Combine, and Walker was among the names listed.

Walker is fresh off of a terrific season for the Buffs, one in which they earned an NIT bid but wound up losing in the first round to St. Bonaventure.

Still, Walker did enough during the season to garner draft buzz and even had his name tied to the first round.

Here is the entire list of players headed for the NBA Combine.

Walker has a lot to prove, especially since a number of scouts have not seen him play.

Nonetheless, Walker appeared as a second-round choice in a recent mock draft from Bleacher Report, and if he performs well during the NBA Combine, he has a realistic shot to end up as a late first-round choice.

It will be worth monitoring Walker’s performance at the Combine and all of the activities heading into the NBA draft this summer, and at this rate, it would be surprising if Walker goes undrafted.
