Deng Adel is coming back.

The University of Louisville sophomore has withdrawn his name from the mix in the NBA Draft and will return to the Cardinals' program for his junior season. An official announcement is expected later today.

As a sophomore, Adel averaged 12.1 points and 4.5 rebounds last season for the Cardinals.

Adel has been working out for NBA teams but was not projected high in the NBA Draft. U of L coach Rick Pitino said last week he expected Adel to return and now the player has made his decision.

This story will be updated after the announcement is made.
