WACO, Texas - Freshman sensation Perry Jones III announced Monday that he will return to Baylor University for his sophomore season.

Jones III, who earned Freshman All-American honors from both and the United States Basketball Writers Association (USBWA), finished the 2010-11 regular season as the Big 12 freshman leader in scoring (13.9) and field goal percentage (54.9). PJ3 finished second on the Baylor team in both scoring and rebounding (7.2) and third in assists (1.2), starting a Baylor freshman-record 30 games. His 54.9 field goal percentage ranks third in school history among freshmen behind only teammate Quincy Acy (65.5 in 2008-09) and 12-year NBA veteran Brian Skinner (59.8 in 1994-95).

The Duncanville, Texas, product was the first Baylor freshman to earn NABC All-District honors since Lawrence Roberts in 2002. He was a second-team All-Big 12 selection by the league's coaches, Yahoo! Sports and The Dallas Morning News, while earning honorable mention by the AP.

Baylor finished the 2010-11 season with an 18-13 overall record and a 7-9 mark in Big 12 Conference play.
