    Tyrese Proctor will return to Duke for his sophomore campaign, he announced Monday.

    The 6-foot-5 guard, who shined in postseason play, was drawing some NBA Draft lottery projections but ultimately returns to Durham for at least one more year.

    “This is the best decision for my career, both present and future,” Proctor told ESPN. “Coach [Jon] Scheyer and I share the same vision; we have unfinished business. We have the best staff in the country, and they will push me each and every day.”

    Proctor averaged 9.4 points, 3.3 assists, and 3.1 rebounds per game last season for the Blue Devils. He’s heralded for his shot creation and playmaking ability as a big guard.

    After reclassifying and skipping his senior year of high school, Proctor remains one of college basketball’s youngest players. He will have just turned 20 by the 2024 NBA Draft.

    Proctor’s return has sparked a serious reaction from many, including class of 2023 five-star and Duke commit Mackenzie Mgbako who told the media on Monday to expect a National Championship next season with Proctor back.

    “I’m excited with Tyrese coming back, Caleb [Foster], Jared [McCain], TJ [Power], me, Sean [Stewart], we have a really talented class so we’re excited to show y’all what we can do,” he said.
