Justin Jackson will play another season for Maryland
Maryland Terrapins freshman forward Justin Jackson is withdrawing from the 2017 NBA Draft and returning to school for his sophomore season, per Don Markus of the Baltimore Sun.
Jackson had a successful freshman season at Maryland as the team's leading rebounder and second-leading scorer. With Melo Trimble gone for the NBA, Jackson has the chance to take over the squad as the leader and as the primary scoring option in the fall, boosting his potential draft value for 2018.
Jackson averaged 10.5 points, 6.0 rebounds, and 1.4 three-pointers in 27.8 minutes per game. He shot 43.8% from three while posting a 108.4 offensive rating.
