BRYAN -- A month and a half ago, Joseph Jones announced he was going to test the NBA draft waters.

That experiment is now over after Jones told Mark Berman of KRIV in Houston that he's returning to Texas A&M for his senior Season.

Jones didn't hire an agent back on April 24 when he announced he was thinking about declaring for the NBA draft later on this month, that decision gave him to option to travel to several NBA draft camps and get a feel for where he might get drafted.

Joseph said back in April if he didn't think he'd be a first round draft choice then he'd return to A&M to finish out his senior season under first year head coach Mark Turgeon.

The pride of Normangee was second on the team in scoring last season, averaging 13.4 points per game.
