The official deadline for underclassmen to withdraw from the NBA draft isn't until tomorrow. But if you go off Virginia Tech guard Malcolm Delaney's Twitter feed, it appears the ACC's leading scorer from a year ago is returning to school.

Delaney declared for the draft March 31, but did not sign with an agent, making him eligible to return to school by the May 8 deadline. He was able to work out for NBA teams this week.

If Delaney officially returns to school, the Hokies will have all five starters back from a team that went 25-9, 10-6 in the ACC and advanced to the quarterfinals of the NIT. He averaged 20.2 points, 3.7 rebounds and 4.5 assists per game in 2009-10.

UPDATE: Andy Katz says it's official over at ESPN.
