Jabari Brown now enrolled at Oakland

Jabari Brown is back home.

The former Salesian High star who transferred to Findlay Prep in Henderson, Nev., over the summer decided Sunday to return to his hometown of Oakland and has enrolled at Oakland High.

“It wasn’t really working out,” said Brown, a second-team All-East Bay selection last season when he helped Salesian to the California Interscholastic Federation Division IV state title. “I just decided it would be a good decision for me and the team and I decided to come home.”

It’s possible Brown could get cleared in time for Wednesday’s 7 p.m. home game against University-San Francisco, although Oakland coach Orlando Watkins said Saturday’s 5:30 p.m game at Sacramento is a more likely possibility.
