Louisville sophomore Montrezl Harrell will return for another season of college basketball rather than enter the 2014 NBA Draft.

"I love the feeling of being a Louisville Cardinal," Harrell tweeted Monday afternoon. "And I will be wearing this for next year."

The attachment to that tweet was a picture of Harrell in a Louisville uniform.

Harrell averaged 14.0 points and 8.4 rebounds this season while helping the Cardinals reach the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. The 6-foot-8 forward would've likely been picked in the first round of the draft, which is why most believed he would forgo his final two years of college. But, instead, Harrell will return for at least another season and join Chris Jones, Terry Rozier, Wayne Blackshear and Mangok Mathiang to create a core that should have Louisville competing at or near the top of the ACC.

Louisville finished 31-6 this season.

Harrell recorded double-doubles in six of his final 11 games.
