Indiana forward Troy Williams announced on Monday that he will be declaring for the NBA Draft. He will not be hiring an agent, which will allow him to return to school after the NBA combine.

“After much thought and family discussion, I’ve decided to declare for this year’s NBA Draft but will not hire an agent,” said Williams in a statement released by the school. “This gives me the opportunity to explore future possibilities, while keeping my options open. Coach Crean is always supportive and makes sure that you have the best information to help you make a decision like this and I value his input. I’m excited to go through this process.”

Williams averaged 13.3 points and 5.8 boards this past season for the Hoosiers, who won the outright Big Ten regular season title. Indiana already got the news that Thomas Bryant will be returning to school. If Williams opts to withdraw from draft consideration, the Hoosiers will likely end up being a top 20 team heading into next season.
