The Braves drafted Jabara in the 31st round out of high school in 2016 but he chose college over signing. Jabara was committed to Oregon but instead landed at Orange Coast JC, where he went 6-1, 4.18 bouncing between starting and relieving. Jabara has a wide range on his fastball, from 85 mph all the way up to 92 mph, but he has both a reliable changeup and curveball he can throw for strikes. He pounds the strike zone and is mentally strong. Jabara was old for a JuCo freshman at nearly 20 and is physically filled out. He also has a checkered injury history after missing time each of the last two years with elbow inflammation. Jabara's pitchability and command give him a chance to be drafted for the second straight year.
