TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — Arizona State guard Alonzo Verge Jr. is withdrawing his name from the NBA draft and will return for his senior season.
“We are thrilled with Alonzo’s decision,” Sun Devils coach Bobby Hurley said in a statement Saturday. “He is committed to winning and competing for championships. Zo is well positioned to have an outstanding senior season, which will strengthen his future professional opportunities.”
Verge joined guard Remy Martin and big man Romello White in declaring for the draft in April.
Martin has yet to decide if he will return for his senior season. White has entered his name in the transfer portal, likely ending his time in the desert. The deadline for pulling out of the draft is Aug. 3.
The return of Verge should give the Sun Devils a huge boost after Hurley brought in one of the program’s best recruiting classes, highlighted by five-star guard Joshua Christopher.
