Tennessee shooting guard Santiago Vescovi said Friday on his Instagram account that he is returning to the school for his senior season.
Vescovi entered his name for the NBA draft and had been going through the information-gathering process, leading him back to the Volunteers program.
Vescovi averaged 13.3 points last season and knocked down 102 3-pointers while earning first-team All-SEC honors. Chris Lofton is the only other Volunteers’ player to make 100 or more 3-pointers in a season, accomplishing the feat three times from 2005-08.
Vescovi has made 191 3-pointers in 81 games (77 starts) for Tennessee. He has career averages of 11.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
The Volunteers have seen two key players withdraw from the upcoming NBA Draft. Guard Josiah-Jordan James (10.3 points last season) announced his return on Sunday.
