PHILADELPHIA –– Rysheed Jordan is one of the top point guards here at the Reebok Breakout Challenge.
The 6-foot-3, 180-pound floor general from Philly Vaux Roberts says he plans to cut his list later this summer.
“I’m ready to narrow it down in July, still wide open,” Jordan told SNY.tv after putting up 9 points, 4 assists and 5 turnovers in the Rams’ 64-59 win over the Zigs.
Jordan’s group of suitors includes Villanova, Kansas, St. John’s, Xavier, Maryland, Temple, La Salle, Rutgers, Marquette, Georgetown, Syracuse and UCLA.
He has visited Xavier, Georgetown, Maryland and the Philly schools.
“It really don’t matter, I’ll go anywhere,” he said.
Jordan plans to cut his list to “five or seven” at the end of July.
“[I’m looking] for somewhere that I can go get an education and they will put the ball in my hands and let me play,” he said.
