WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. -- Purdue center Isaac Haas has withdrawn his name from the NBA draft and will return to school for his senior season.
The announcement comes more than a week before the deadline to opt out.
Haas issued a statement Tuesday saying he learned a lot about what he needs to work on before the end of next season. Coach Matt Painter also issued a statement, saying the Boilermakers were "excited" that the 7-foot-2 Haas was returning.
Haas averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds last season, shooting 58.7 percent from the field. He has scored 1,041 career points.
