Timmy Allen is returning to Utah for his junior season.

The 6-foot-6, 204-pound forward confirmed via a social media video Thursday night that he is withdrawing his name from the NBA draft and returning to the hill for the 2020-21 season.

“I’m excited to let you guys know that I’m taking my name out of the 2020 NBA Draft and I’ll be returning to campus to go to school and play next year. I’m excited to get to work with my teammates and coaches again and I’m excited to rep this red,” Allen said in the video.

Allen was an integral part of Utah’s team last year, leading the team in points per game, 17.3, by a good margin — Both Gach was second with 10.7 points per game. Allen averaged 7.3 rebounds, 3 assists and 1.2 steals as one of Utah’s leaders on the court.
