Varnado returns, says he “wasn’t ready for the NBA”

STARKVILLE | Jarvis Varnado is returning for his senior season at Mississippi State.
The Bulldog basketball star said today through a Mississippi State news release that he was withdrawing his name from consideration for the NBA Draft, which will be held June 25.

“I feel like I wasn’t ready for the NBA,” Varnado was quoted as saying in a university news release. “Another year in college can only help my game, and I’m really excited about this team. I’m looking forward to coming back and playing with these guys another year. I think we have a chance to make some noise, and not just in the SEC. This was a decision I prayed a lot about, and I feel this is what God wants me to do.”
