BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - UAB Basketball star Jordan “Jelly” Walker announced on social media that he will return to the Blazers for his senior season.

Walker also broke current UAB head coach Andy Kennedy’s scoring record for most points scored by a UAB player in a game.

Walker originally declared for the NBA Draft, but decided to return to the Blazers for the next season.
