With only a few days away from the deadline for college basketball players to withdraw their names from the 2019 NBA Draft, two more LSU Tigers have decided to return to the program.
As first reported by Jon Rothstein of CBS Sports, Skylar Mays and Marlon Taylor have both decided to withdraw their names on Monday.

Mays was a key part of LSU’s 28-6 2018-19 season, averaging 13.4 points, 3.3 boards, 2.1 assists and 1.9 steals per game in his junior season. Taylor, who joined the program last spring out Panola College, was a human highlight reel for the Tigers with some outstanding dunks that left many inside the PMAC shocked.
This comes a little more than a week after Javonte Smart announced his return to the program for his sophomore season. Emmitt Williams and Naz Reid will have until Wednesday, May 29th to make a final decision about their future.
