So I am guessing that Jazz will not be back? If so that is sad because she is so gifted…but once again attitude can be a killer…

Well, she’s still around campus and was just seen last week reading to kids in Houston with one of the BOR. UH Social media pushed out that she was doing it and she was still a member of the team.
