Kennedy Meeks has withdrawn his name from the NBA Draft and will return to North Carolina for his senior season.

Meeks slimmed down from being close to 300 pounds when he arrived on campus to playing at around 260 pounds last season as a junior.

"I appreciate the support my coaches and teammates gave me during this process as we gathered information about my professional opportunities at this time," Meeks said in a statement. "The feedback on what I have to work on so that I can have a great senior year, help my team have a great season and be ready to take that next step is invaluable."

Justin Jackson is the only player on the Tar Heels still going through the draft process.

I don't see this helping him at all tbh looking at his college career trajectory, he looks like to be declining.
