Canadian track star Andre De Grasse will be going back to the University of Southern California for his senior year.
The sprinter has opted to pass on endorsement dollars after his stellar performance at the Pan Am games and earning a bronze medal at the world track and field championships this summer.
According to a spokesperson for Athletics Canada, De Grasse will run for USC this upcoming season and the 20-year-old is also looking to fulfill his mother’s wish and get his degree before turning pro.
The 20-year-old Markham native is the reigning NCAA champion for both the 100 and 200 metres.
De Grasse will wait to turn pro and experts say that if he decided to skip his final year at USC, he would be looking at more than a million dollars in endorsements.
