LAWRENCE, Kan. — Kansas sophomore David McCormack will return to school for his junior year instead of entering the 2020 NBA draft, he announced Thursday.

McCormack, 6-10, 265-pound power forward from Norfolk, Va., averaged 6.9 points and 4.1 rebounds a game last season for the Jayhawks (28-3). He started 18 of 29 games in which he appeared and played an average of 14.6 minutes a game.

“Me and my family have looked into my NBA draft prospects the past few weeks to get some input from the NBA teams on what areas of my game I need to improve on,” McCormack said Thursday. “It was a great opportunity to hear from them and I’m looking forward to putting those on display this next season at Allen Fieldhouse. We have a great coaching staff who can help me and my teammates reach that next level.”
