Maryland basketball standout Justin Jackson is reportedly returning to school.
According to a report on Tuesday from Jon Rothstein of Fan Rag Sports, the star freshman has decided to withdraw his name from consideration in the 2017 NBA Draft and will instead return to the Terrapins for his sophomore campaign.
The deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the draft is May 24.
During his freshman season, the 6-foot-7 forward from Canada recorded 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds and 0.9 assists per game. The best game of Jackson’s young career came in January against Minnesota. Jackson recorded a career-high 28 points while adding ten boards.
With Jackson returning to the court for his sophomore season in College Park, you can expect him to be featured early and often in the Terrapins’ gameplan.
