Purdue center Isaac Haas announced Tuesday that he’ll be returning for his senior season with the Boilermakers.
Less than a week before the deadline to withdraw from the 2017 NBA Draft, Purdue’s Isaac Haas has already made his decision: He’s coming back.
Here’s his official statement, per Purdue’s athletics website.
“After going through the NBA evaluations and workouts with multiple teams, I have had many long discussions with my family and the Purdue coaching staff. We came to the decision that it’s best that I come back to Purdue and help bring Purdue to a better place than last year for my senior year,” Haas said. “I learned so much from the NBA experience and I want to thank all the organizations that managed to bring me in and allowed me to showcase my talents while improving certain aspects of my game and learning what I need to work on. It’s time to focus on next year and to bring another conference championship and a national title to Purdue.”
Haas averaged 12.6 points and 5.0 rebounds last season, shooting 58.7 percent from the field. He has scored 1,041 career points.
Big Ten Player of the Year Caleb Swanigan and forward Vince Edwards have yet to announce whether they will return to Purdue or stay in the draft. The deadline is May 24.
