Freshman guard/forward Kris Wilkes has withdrawn his name from the 2018 NBA draft pool and will head back to UCLA for his sophomore season, the school announced today (via Twitter). Jon Rothstein of FanRag Sports first reported Wilkesa€™ decision (via Twitter).

a€œIa€™m grateful to everybody at UCLA who has been supporting me and helping me through the pre-draft process,a€ Wilkes said in a statement. a€œIt was certainly an eye-opening experience, one that I know is going to help me get better. Ia€™m excited for the summer and for our season ahead, and Ia€™m ready to get to work. Go Bruins!a€

In his freshman season with the Bruins, Wilkes emerged as a reliable contributor for Steve Alforda€˜s squad, averaging 13.7 PPG and 4.9 RPG with a .441/.352/.655 shooting line.
