Former Western Kentucky forward Jabari McGhee will reportedly play this season for Austin Peay as a graduate transfer, according to CBS Sports.


McGhee played in 21 games for the Hilltoppers after becoming eligible in December of 2016. He averaged 4.7 points and four rebounds.

McGhee originally committed to Auburn University as a high school senior in 2013 before enrolling at Hargrave Military Academy. He was named the Albany (Ga.) Herald player of the year after his senior year at Monroe High School, scored more than 1,200 career points and was named all-state after averaging a double-double.

At Hargrave, McGhee averaged 23 points and 15 rebounds per game. He then enrolled at Tennessee where he redshirted in 2014-15 and played in six games in 2015-16 before deciding to transfer to WKU and sitting out a full calendar year.

McGhee took a medical exemption during the 2017-18 season.
