IU men's basketball forward Juwan Morgan has opted to return to Bloomington to play his senior season.

Morgan made the announcement Tuesday night on his Instagram page, before an IU Athletics press release confirmed the news.

He withdrew his name from NBA Draft consideration prior to the deadline, allowing him to return to IU.

"It's been a great process and I thank all the teams for their feedback, but after talking with my family, coaches and closest friends, it is in my best interest to return to IU and continue preparing for my senior year," Morgan said in the release.  "It has always been a goal of mine to play basketball at the highest level and that hasn't changed." 

Morgan did not receive an invite to the NBA Combine earlier this month. 

He started 30 games for the Hoosiers last season, averaging 16.5 points scored and 7.4 rebounds.
