MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University forward Kevin Jones has withdrawn his name from the 2011 NBA draft and will return for his senior season at WVU.
“This was a good experience for me to go through the process and gain valuable feedback for my goal of playing in the NBA,” says Jones. “I’m excited about coming back to West Virginia and playing with my teammates for my senior season.”
“Kevin went through the process in a systematic and professional manner by exploring his options,” says WVU basketball coach Bob Huggins. “He was able to gain feedback from NBA professionals that will help him in the future. We’re pleased that he will be a Mountaineer for his senior season.”
