Oregon forward Dillon Brooks will withdraw from the NBA draft and return to school, reports Jeff Goodman of ESPN. 

Brooks declared for the draft after leading the Ducks in scoring last season with 16.7 points per game. However, he did not hire an agent during the draft process and was not invited to the NBA combine.

He also recorded 5.4 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 32.8 minutes per game. 

Brooks earned first team All-Pac-12 and AP honorable mention All-American honors, ultimately leading the Ducks to the Elite Eight of the NCAA tournament.

Villanova’s Josh Hart will return for one more season

Oregon teammate Tyler Dorsey also declared for the draft without hiring an agent. Underclassmen have until 11:59 p.m. ET on Wednesday to withdraw from the draft.
