Missouri's Jontay Porter to return for sophomore season

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) Missouri forward Jontay Porter has withdrawn his name from NBA draft and will return for his sophomore season.

The school announced Porter's decision on Wednesday, the final day the 6-foot-11 forward could remove his name from the draft and return to the Tigers for next season. Porter followed the lead of his brother, Michael Porter Jr., in declaring for the draft last month, but he didn't hire an agent.

Jontay Porter averaged 9.9 points and 6.8 rebounds per game as a freshman for Missouri, doing so after reclassifying his prep eligibility and skipping his senior year of high school so he could join his brother with the Tigers. He earned Southeastern Conference Co-Sixth Man of the Year honors and was named to the league's All-Freshman team.
