Some good news for Fighting Illini basketball! Via his Instagram account, junior guard Malcolm Hill announced his intent to return to Illinois for his senior season. Hill averaged 18.1 points, 6.6 rebounds, 3.3 assists, and 1.2 steals per game this year while shooting 43.6% from the field; those numbers were enough to earn him a Second Team All-Big Ten selection.

Here's the full message that Hill shared on Friday afternoon:

Due to changes in NCAA rules, prospects are now allowed to withdraw their name from the draft up to 10 days after the NBA Scouting Combine. As a result, a lot of players are choosing to 'declare' without signing an agent to represent them -- this allows for more free feedback from NBA executives.

So, welcome back Malcolm! Can't wait to watch you dominate again next season.
