Collins withdraws from draft
Dwayne Collins will return to Miami for his senior year
Frank Haith said he thinks Collins could be one of the ACC's best big men
CORAL GABLES, Fla. (AP) -- Dwayne Collins has withdrawn his name from the upcoming NBA Draft and says he will return to the University of Miami for his senior year.
Collins had workouts with the San Antonio Spurs and Miami Heat, but had not hired an agent to retain the option of returning to the Hurricanes. He made the announcement Friday.
The 6-foot-8 Collins was Miami's second-leading scorer last season, averaging 10.6 points per game. He also had a team-high 7.3 rebounds per game during the 2008-09 season.
Miami coach Frank Haith said in a statement that Collins "has the potential to be one of the best big men in the ACC this season."
