Dozens of players declared for the NBA draft, but which ones decided to go back to school after testing the waters? 

By The SI Staff
May 09, 2019

The 2019 withdrawal deadline has passed, meaning all underclassmen who had intentions of entering the NBA draft have officially made their decisions. Dozens of current NCAA players tested the waters, but a large percentage of them removed their names before the May 29 deadline. Who said they're coming back to school? Who decided to stay put in the draft?

Don't forget, under new NCAA rules for 2019, players can now hire a certified agent, declare for the draft and still withdraw by the deadline (as long as the player ends the relationship with the agent after withdrawing).

The full list of players who either declared for the NBA draft or said they are returning for the 2019–20 college basketball season is below. SI.com's most recent NBA mock draft can be found here.
