Miami Hurricanes forward Dewan Huell withdrew his name from the 2018 NBA Draft on Saturday, according to a report from ESPN’s Jeff Borzello.
Huell had originally declared his intentions to test the waters of the draft earlier this offseason. However, he did not hire an agent, allowing him to go through the evaluation process while retaining his collegiate eligibility.
That inevitably set the stage for the 6-foot-11, 236-pound forward’s return to Miami for his junior season. Now, he’ll continue to be a focal point in Jim Larranaga’s system.
Huell has played in 64 games and made 47 starts in two seasons with the Hurricanes. After serving as a key role player in his freshman season, he started every game in his sophomore campaign and averaged 11.4 points, 6.7 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.
Miami lost sophomore guard Bruce Brown and freshman guard Lonnie Walker IV to the 2018 NBA Draft. Each made the decision to enter early, and both have hired agents, relinquishing all remaining collegiate eligibility.
