Indiana standout Yogi Ferrell is expected to announce on Sunday that he’s decided to return to school for his senior season, a source told CBSSports.com early Sunday.

The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the NBA Draft is 11:59 p.m. ET.

Ferrell was initially scheduled to announce his intentions Saturday but postponed that event out of respect for the family of Hannah Wilson, a 22-year old Indiana student who was found slain Friday.

Ferrell was widely projected as a likely second-round pick.

The 6-foot point guard averaged 16.3 points, 4.9 assists and 3.2 rebounds this past season while leading Indiana to the NCAA Tournament. His return means the Hoosiers should be in the top 15 of CBSSports.com’s preseason Top 25 (and one).
