According to Jon Rothstein, Robert Johnson will be back to play for Archie Miller and Indiana basketball next year.
Robert Johnson is withdrawing from the 2017 NBA Draft and plans to finish his senior year at Indiana, per a source. #iubb— Jon Rothstein (@JonRothstein) May 16, 2017
Johnson originally decided to test the draft waters last month, but will bring experience and a scoring prowess to the two-guard position for the Hoosiers, who will need scoring help without James Blackmon Jr. and Thomas Bryant. Last season, Johnson averaged 12.8 points per game, 4.4 rebounds, and 2.5 assists; however, his three-point field goal percentage fell from 44% to 37%.
Johnson’s return also solves the final piece of the puzzle in terms of next year’s roster for the Hoosiers. Bryant, Blackmon, and OG Anunoby are all gone to the NBA Draft, but Clifton Moore, Justin Smith, and Al Durham all deciding to remain committed to Indiana. As a result, Archie Miller should have full scholarship load for next season, barring any unexpected late transfers.
UPDATE: RoJo himself has not confirmed this yet.
