Romeo Langford confirmed recently that he’ll be keeping his name in the NBA Draft, but three of his Indiana teammates will be heading back to Bloomington.
Wednesday, Jeff Goodman of Stadium reported that Al Durham, Devonte Green and Justin Smith all plan to withdraw from the NBA Draft and will return to school. The news isn’t overly shocking, but it is a positive announcement for the Hoosiers.

Durham, Green and Smith were all significant contributors for the Hoosiers a year ago, all averaging over eight points per game. They’ll bring back plenty of experience for IU, which is key for a team that was relatively young a year ago.
Green averaged 9.4 points per game, third-highest for the team. He also averaged 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists per contest. Durham averaged 8.3 points and Smith averaged 8.2.
Indiana finished the 2018-19 campaign with a 19-16 record and was 8-12 in B1G play. The Hoosiers swept Michigan State and notched wins over Marquette and Wisconsin, as well.
