Jermaine Haley and Washington parted ways on Sunday.

Haley, a 6-foot-7 guard, had committed to Washington one day after the final July evaluation period. He decommitted on Sunday. The news was confirmed to Scout.com by DRIVE coach Pasha Bains.

"Jermaine has to focus on his academics the next two years," Bains told Scout.com. "He needs to consider all his options and be open to recruitment from all schools."

According to Bains, Haley will finish this year at Burnaby South in British Columbia and then attend a prep school next year.

Haley is regarded as a four-star prospect on Scout.com.
