Salesian’s Jabari Bird will announce college decision Wednesday

Salesian High basketball star Jabari Bird will announce his college choice Wednesday, Pride boys basketball coach Bill Mellis confirmed.
The 6-foot-6 Bird, a five-star wing, had narrowed down his choices to Cal, Washington, Oregon and Colorado, Mellis said. Bird took an official visit to Cal this past weekend and it was the first official visit that he took, Mellis said.
According to online reports, Bird has canceled his remaining official visits to Colorado, Oregon and Washington.
Bird, one of the most sought-after recruits in the country, led Salesian to the California Interscholastic Federation Division IV state championship last season. He was the Pride’s leading scorer (18.7 points per game) and rebounder (4.8 per game).
