Paul Atkinson announced on Twitter Saturday night that he will return to Yale for his senior campaign, a season after he was named Ivy League Co-Player of the Year.

Atkinson had announced last month that he would enter the 2020 NBA Draft while maintaining his college eligibility.

This past season, Atkinson finished third in the league in scoring, fifth in rebounding, first in free-throw percentage, seventh in steals and 10th in blocks amid Yale’s Ivy League championship run. The West Palm Beach, Fla. native finished second in Ivy play in fouls drawn per 40 minutes.
