He’s back!

NCAA Basketball: Texas Tech at Baylor Raymond Carlin III-USA TODAY Sports

Jared Butler, Baylor’s First Team All-Big 12, Third Team All-American and leading scorer, told Trey Wingo he’s returning for his junior season.

Butler entered the NBA Draft and had until today to announce his decision. As a man on nearly every draft board, Butler had a reasonable case for returning or going pro.

Butler is now one of four starters back for the 2020-2021 Bears. With his return, Baylor should be ranked No. 1 or No. 2 in the preseason; the Bears will also be picked to win the Big 12. Butler will be the Big 12 Preseason Player of the Year.
