2020 NBA Draft deadline to withdraw: Tracking who’s staying in and who’s returning to school

Watch Now: Reaction: Ayo Dosunmu returns to Illinois (3:34)

Illinois stars Kofi Cockburn and Ayo Dosunmu headline the latest crop of college stars to formally withdraw from the 2020 NBA Draft and return to school ahead of the Aug. 3 NCAA deadline, setting the Illini up for a potentially historic upcoming season.

Joining the duo among college stars who have opted to put the NBA on hold and return to school include Gonzaga’s Joel Ayayi, Arkansas’ Isaiah Joe and Virginia big man Jay Huff, pushing the total number of returning underclassmen who tested the NBA draft waters to nearly five dozen. And with just a few days until the NCAA’s official withdrawal deadline, we should finally start seeing regular movement on the NBA Draft front as prospects start making final decisions about whether to stay in the draft or return to college in 2020.

We’ll be tracking all of them in the lead-up to the withdrawal deadline and filing them into two separate tables below: those who have opted to return and those who are still in the draft. The players who have chosen to keep their name in the NBA Draft have their name bolded in the second table.
