Clemson leading scorer Hall withdraws from NBA draft, returns to Tigers
CLEMSON, S.C. (AP) Clemson leading scorer PJ Hall is returning to college after withdrawing from the NBA draft on Thursday.
The 6-foot-10 forward took part in the NBA combine and posted his decision to put off the pros on social media.
Hall led the Tigers with 15.3 points per game this past season. He also led the Tigers with 37 blocks, along with 5.7 rebounds. Hall helped Clemson finish third in the Atlantic Coast Conference while posting a program record 14 league wins.
Clemson coach Brad Brownell said Hall gained experience from going through the NBA's combine that will help the team next season. “I'm counting on him and others to help lead a very talented group,” he said.
Hall was named to the all-ACC third team last season as the Tigers went 23-10.
