University of Alabama forward John Petty announced that he will forgo the NBA Draft and return to the Crimson Tide for his senior season on Monday afternoon.

The decision gives Alabama a full roster for the upcoming campaign as last season's point guard Kira Lewis Jr. declared for the NBA Draft back in March. Also, four players from last season departed via the transfer portal.

Petty was third on the team in scoring as he averaged 14.5 points in 29 games played. The Huntsville, Alabama, native led the team in three-point percentage, amassing a .440 mark from beyond the arc, and became the fifth player in program history with at least 200 made three-pointers for his career.
