Washington Wizards point guard John Wall spent only one season playing for the Kentucky Wildcats, but that isn't stopping him from earning his degree.  

Per Candace Buckner of the Washington Post, the 27-year-old intends to return to college this summer to earn his bachelor's degree. 

"I'm going back to school this summer to get my business degree," Wall explained over All-Star Weekend. "That's what I'm focusing on. I promised my dad that."

In January, Wall penned an open letter to his deceased father via The Undefeated. Wall's father died of liver cancer when Wall was only eight years old.
