Temple head coach Fran Dunphy and St. John’s assistant Tony Chiles watched Rysheed Jordan score 20 points as Philly Vaux Roberts beat St. Andrews (Del.), 66-61, on Sunday, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer.
The 6-foot-3 Jordan recently told the Inquirer he would soon announce for either St. John’s, Temple or UCLA, but now says it could happen anytime.
“I could make it any day,” he told CityofBasketballlove.com. “They were the three teams I could see myself playing in their offense or defense.”
His coach, Jamie Ross, said nothing was imminent.
“He’s been handling it great so far,” Ross told the site. “He’s taking everything into consideration, thinking about, he’s talked to myself, his AAU coach, and we’re debating. Like I said right now, he’s just not ready to decide.”
