HAMILTON, N.Y. - Jordan Burns is coming back to Colgate.
The star guard announced via Twitter, Wednesday, that he has decided to return to the University and the Raiders men's basketball team for his senior year.
On April 3, the San Antonio, Texas native said that he would declare for the NBA Draft and explore his options for a potential move to the pros, but did leave the possibility open for a fourth year in Hamilton.
In the tweet, Burns said that with the coronavirus pandemic altering summer workout plans and likely preventing any type of NBA Combine from happening, he felt it was not the right time to leave school.
"At this time, I feel like it is best to go back to college for my senior campaign," Burns said. "I want to get my degree from Colgate University and walk the stage with the classmates and teammates I came in with.
"I also want another chance to compete for a championship and continue to build on the legacy I want to leave behind at Colgate."

Burns lead the Raiders last season with 15.8 points per game and 4.5 assists per game. He also had two double-doubles and a 40-point game against Green Bay on November 26.
The 6'0" guard was named to the All-Patriot League First Team and the Patriot League All-Tournament Team last season.
He was also on the Patriot League All-Tournament team the prior year, as a sophomore, where he was the tournament MVP, helping Colgate capture its first conference title and NCAA Tournament berth since 1996.
Burns was on the Patriot League All-Rookie Team in 2018.
In 95 career games for the Raiders, the Texan has 1,398 points (14.7 ppg), 418 assists (4.4 apg), and 280 rebounds (2.9 rpg). He's averaged playing 31 minutes per game.
With Burns in the fold, Colgate is losing just three seniors from last year's squad, two starters in Will Rayman and Rapolas Ivanauskas.
