    According to ESPN’s Jeff Goodman, Ohio State junior Trevor Thompson has decided to pull back from the NBA Draft process and return to Ohio State for another season.

    Ohio State big man Trevor Thompson told ESPN he has withdrawn from the NBA Draft.

    After transferring from Virginia Tech in 2014, Thompson split time with Daniel Giddens at center during his first season in Columbus, starting 28 games for head coach Thad Matta.

    The Indianapolis native averaged nearly 18 minutes per game during the 2015-16 season, scoring 6.5 points per game and grabbing 5 rebounds per contest.

    Thompson shot 52 percent from the floor and 75 percent from the charity stripe. The Big man only averaged two free throw attempts per game though in his first season with Ohio State.

    By returning to play for the Buckeyes, Thompson will be the favorite to start in a very talented incoming front court. He’ll rejoin sophomore David Bell as well as freshman Micah Potter at the center position.

    Marc Loving, Keita Bates-Diop, Jae’Sean Tate, Derek Funderburk, and Andre Wesson will fill out the other two forward positions.

    Before transferring to Ohio State, Thompson averaged five points and five rebounds during his freshman campaign with Virginia Tech.

    Defensively, he returns in 2016 as the team leader in blocks.

    Thompson should start next season, but could see competition from other big men in the program.
