LOGAN, Utah (AP) -Jaycee Carroll withdrew from the NBA draft Friday and will return for his senior year at Utah State.
Carroll, who led the Western Athletic Conference in scoring last season (21.3), worked out for the Utah Jazz. He said he'd withdraw if he wasn't considered a first-round pick. The deadline is Monday.
``Coming back to school will give me the opportunity to continue to develop as a player and enhance my draft status for the next year,'' Carroll said in a statement. ``I also want to finish my degree and help Utah State contend for a Western Athletic Conference championship and a trip to the NCAA tournament.''
Utah State finished 23-12 last season and will have three returning starters.
