The senior Badger announced that decision on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon:

Potter’s note included a series of “Thank You’s” to Wisconsin fans and the rest of the basketball program.
“The memories I’ve made as a Badger will last a life time, and all I can say is thank you,” Potter wrote in-part. “I wish we could’ve experienced this last year together as we all desperately missed you at the Kohl Center, but the excitement we got to experience with you in 2020 winning a B1G title made it worth all the while.”
Potter was eligible to return to school for a fifth year of eligibility because of the pandemic. The NCAA granted a blanket waiver for all players in 2020. Instead, Potter wraps up a four-year carer that included time with the Badgers and Ohio State.
He averaged 12.5 points and 5.9 rebounds per contest this season.
Wisconsin’s season ended over the weekend with a 76-63 loss to Baylor in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
