University of Kansas point guard Devonte’ Graham¬†announced his intentions to return to school for his senior year Sunday via Twitter.

“I would just like to announce to all my family, friends, and fans that I’m coming back to school for my senior year,” said Graham in a statement released on Twitter. Graham decided not to test NBA waters and instead return for his senior season.

Graham helped lead Kansas to a 31-5 record before falling to Oregon in the Sweet Sixteen. This season, Graham averaged 13.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG, and 4.1 APG during his junior season.

Kansas will lose seniors Frank Mason III, Landen Lucas, and Tyler Self to graduation. They are likely to lose freshman sensation Josh Jackson to the NBA Draft and will lose sophomore Carlton Bragg to transfer. On Friday, Mason was named as the 2016-2017 Wooden Award winner.

Graham averaged 13.4 PPG, 3.1 RPG, and 4.1 APG during his junior season. Joining Graham will be incoming freshmen Billy Preston and Marcus Garrett, along with transfers Sam Cunliffe and Malik Newman, who sat out last year due to transfer rules.
