Jarrod West withdraws from NBA Draft, returns to Marshall for senior season

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — With the deadline approaching for underclassmen to cement their status in the NBA Draft process, Clarksburg native Jarrod West has withdrawn his name from draft consideration. He will return to Marshall for his senior season this winter.

On April 10, West announced he would explore his NBA options with the possibility of returning to school. The traditional pre-draft window was altered without the annual draft combine or in-person workouts at team facilities.

West’s return allows the Herd to bring back their team almost completely intact. Marshall went 17-15, advancing to the Conference USA quarterfinals before the postseason was halted by the pandemic.

West starred for his father, a former WVU standout, at Notre Dame High School. He led the Fighting Irish to the 2017 Class A state championship while winning the Evans Award as the state’s top player.

Jarrod West named the top boys basketball player in the state by the West Virginia Sports Writers Association in 2017.

West was a third team all-Conference USA selection as a junior, averaging 14.2 points, 4.1 assists and 4 rebounds per game. He led the league in steals and minutes played.
