Clemson leading scorer PJ Hall withdrew his name from the NBA draft on Thursday and will return to the Tigers for a fourth season.

The 6-foot-10 center led the team with 15.4 points in 32 games (26 starts) in 2022-23.

“I’m thrilled that PJ decided to return to Clemson. I’m proud of how he performed at the NBA Combine, gaining valuable experience in the process,” Clemson coach Brad Brownell said in a release. “He’s one of the best players in our league and I’m counting on him and others to help lead a very talented group this season.”

Hall also averaged 5.7 rebounds while shooting 53.5 percent from the field, 39.8 percent from the 3-point line and 78.6 percent from the foul line.

Hall has scored 1,043 points in 84 career games (56 starts) in three seasons at Clemson.
