St. John’s guard Rysheed Jordan
is expected to be ruled academically ineligible for the fall semester and may have played his last game for the team, according to a report by Roger Rubin of the New York Daily News.
Jordan, the Johnnies best returning player, could still get his grades in order to play during the spring semester, but he also may leave the program, according to Rubin.
“Nothing is set in stone yet,” a source close to the situation told SNY.tv.
Jordan, who averaged 14.1 points last season, was expected to take a leap forward and help fill the shoes of departing seniors Phil Greene
and D’Angelo Harrison
“As far as talent, he’s really gifted,” St. John’s coach Chris Mullin
said this spring. “I think I can really help him develop.”
If he leaves, newly signed
point guard Marcus LoVett
will have to contribute immediately.
In April, Jordan announced
that he was returning for his junior season, considered a smart move as he was not expected to be selected for the 2015 NBA Draft.
