Jakob Poeltl announced he would return to Utah for his sophomore season.
"I really enjoy it here at the University of Utah," Poeltl said. "I love my teammates, coaches and college in general. I think another year will help my development and I'm looking forward to next season."
Poeltl, a semifinalist for the Kareem Abdul-Jabbar award, was also named to the Pac-12's All-Freshman Team after shooting 68 percent from the field (4th nationally) and ranking third in the league in blocked shots.
Poeltl was expected to be a first round pick if he were to declare for the NBA.
