Clemson forward Jaron Blossomgame pulls out of NBA draft

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) Clemson's Jaron Blossomgame says he is withdrawing from the NBA draft and returning to school for a final season.

The 6-foot-7 all-Atlantic Coast Conference forward had until midnight Wednesday to take his name out consideration. Blossomgame announced his decision on campus after returning from a workout with the Phoenix Suns.

Blossomgame averaged 18.7 points a game last season and was voted the ACC's most improved player, along with making the all-ACC first team. He was considered the centerpiece of Clemson's chances for reaching the NCAA tournament next season for the first time since 2011.
