For the second time this offseason, a player that had declared for the NBA draft without getting drafted announced that he will actually be returning to school.

Clemson forward David Skara, a native of Croatia and a transfer from Valparaiso that has spent the last two seasons with the Tigers, announced on Wednesday that he will return for his redshirt senior season. He averaged 19.3 minutes last year, helping the Tigers to a No. 5 seed and a spot in the Sweet 16.

This comes on the heels of LaGerald Vicks return to Kansas. Both players declared for the draft. Both players went through the NBA draft process without signing with an agent. Both players did not get drafted and did not find a suitable landing spot overseas, meaning that they were able to return to school for one final go-around.

Skara is going to help Clemson next season. He is going to be a valuable role player for a team that has a chance to once again finished somewhere near the top of the ACC.
