PHILLY — Rysheed Jordan, a 2013 point guard out of Vaux Roberts in Philly, may well have been the best player on the first day of the Reebok Breakout Challenge.
Though the 6-foot-4 Jordan only had five points, four rebounds and one assist in the Wildcats’ 69-60 win over Powerade, he showed tremendous quickness, the ability to break defenders down off the dribble and get his teammates involved.
In this video, he talks about the status of his recruitment heading into the July recruiting period, mentioning Pittsburgh, Arizona, St. John’s, Georgetown, St. Joe’s, Drexel, La Salle and Temple.
“Most of the schools in Philly have offered,” he said.
Jordan also said he plans to take unofficials to Georgetown and St. John’s this summer, and wants to decide by the end of his junior year.
