Alabama leading scorer Jaden Shackelford announced Tuesday night that he would withdraw from the transfer portal and return to Alabama for his junior year.

"Now it's time to finish what we started ... RUN IT BACK!" he posted to Twitter, in part.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 14.0 points per game in 33 contests (32 starts) for Alabama, which finished first in the SEC and won the SEC tournament. The Crimson Tide earned a 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and advanced to the Sweet 16, where they lost to Final Four-bound UCLA in overtime.

Shackelford entered his name in the transfer portal earlier this month, telling one outlet he was pursuing Ohio State, Oklahoma and Texas Tech as possible destinations.
