CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (WAND) -- Not only did Ayo Dosunmu withdrew from the NBA Draft and return to campus, but so did Kofi Cockburn.

Today, the Jamaican big man was named to Kareem Abdul-Jabbar Center of the Year Award Watch List.

This comes a season after Cockburn was named the 2020 Big Ten Freshman of the Year.

Last season, he averaged 13 points, 8 rebounds and one block per game.
