Junior forward Cory Jefferson announced today that he will be returning for anther year.

After a breakout year, Jefferson was projected to be a late pick in the 2013 NBA Draft if he decided to enter.

“Everything went into this decision,” Jefferson said. “It was probably one of the biggest decisions of my life. Before this time, I’d say it was the redshirt, but that decision was a breeze compared to this one.”
