Star center Angel Delgado announced via his Twitter account on Monday that he will forgo the NBA Draft and return to Seton Hall for his senior season.

“I am coming back to school for my senior year,” Delgado stated via his release. “It’s very important to my family that I finish what I started. This was a difficult decision that took time and patience.”

“Coming back feels just right,” Delgado continued. “I am excited to help make 2018 a special year for Seton Hall.”

Delgado had an outstanding junior campaign in which he led the country in rebounding with 13.1 per game. The All-American Honorable Mention was second in the nation in double-doubles behind Purdue’s Caleb Swanigan. Delgado was a first team All-Big EAST member, as well as a Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Award finalist for best center in the country.

Delgado recorded 27 double-doubles in 33 games. He averaged 15.2 points while shooting .542 from the field, 13.1 rebounds, 2.2 assists, 0.6 steals and 0.3 blocks in 33.0 minutes of play for the Pirates during the 2016-17 season.

Angel returning to South Orange after speculation that he would stay in the draft with an agent is a huge victory for the Pirates. Seton Hall returns four starters from a team that has made back to back NCAA tournaments. Many experts believe the Pirates should start the year in the NCAA Top 25.
