Petty announces his return to Alabama on Social Media
John Petty Jr. has decided to withdraw his name from the NBA Draft and return to Alabama for his Senior season. Petty led the Crimson Tide in rebounding(6.6) and three point shooting(44%).
Statement from Alabama Men’s Basketball Head Coach Nate Oats on John Petty’s Decision to Return:
“It’s great to have John back for his senior year. He is certainly one of the best, if not the best, shooters in the country which is extremely important to us with how we play. He’s made it clear that it’s his goal to become a first round pick in the 2021 NBA Draft and we’re going to work with him to make sure he’s in the best position to reach that goal. Let’s get to work!”
