Tennessee sophomore Scotty Hopson will pass on the NBA Draft and return to school for his junior season, a source close to the program confirmed to CBSSports.com.
An official announcement could come later today.
Hopson averaged 12.2 points per game this season while leading UT to the Elite Eight. His return means the Vols will crack the preseason Top 25 (and one). They were left out of the rankings posted last week under the assumption Hopson would be gone.
