Duke Blue Devils Amile Jefferson received approval for a medical redshirt by the ACC, to return for a fifth year in 2016-17.
He is a 6-9 forward from Philadelphia.
Jefferson played nine games last season before hurting his foot injury in December. At the time he was averaging 11.4 points and 10.3 rebounds.
Jefferson is expected to bring leadership to a young frontcourt that will include incoming freshman forward Harry Giles, the No. 1 ranked player in the ESPN 100 for the class of 2016. Grayson Allen is also set to return.
