Kris Jenkins withdraws from NBA Draft, returns to Villanova

The Villanova Wildcats won the national championship just last month in one of the best college basketball games ever played. Kris Jenkins sunk a last-second three pointer to lift the team to victory and it looks like he will have the chance to do that again next season.

Jenkins took to Twitter to announce that he would be withdrawing his name from the NBA Draft and would return to Villanova for the 2016-17 season. He said that he wants to grow into a leader and help his team achieve even more than they did last year.

It has been a great ride for Kris Jenkins so far and it certainly looks like he wants just a little more from his college experience. During the 201-16 season, he averaged 13.6 points, 3.9 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game and shot 38 percent from beyond the three-point line.

The Wildcats should be pretty excited to have Jenkins back this year as they should only lose two seniors to graduation this season.
