Down in Philly, the post-high school season Donofrio Classic runs until April 16th, featuring some of the best players in the Philadelphia area. So of course, St. John's recruiting target Rysheed Jordan is playing on the Team Philly squad with Providence commit Brandon Austin, and moving through the bracket.
The City of Basketball Love's Josh Verlin has an interesting note about Jordan and his college announcement in the recap:
–Rysheed Jordan is announcing his college decision on Thursday, and told CoBL tonight that he hadn’t yet decided exactly how he’s going to make the decision. He says he knows which school he’s going to and that he made his decision up last week; the 6-foot-4 point guard has been deciding between Temple, St. John’s and UCLA for several months.
That sounds promising, given the rumors that St. John's is in the lead for the 6'4" slashing playmaker. Also positive? Bruins Nation is already upset about new UCLA coach Steve Alford losing a recruit to Steve Lavin.
Rysheed Jordan makes his official decision tomorrow. Will it be to reporters? Via Twitter? Instagram with a team hat? Smoke signals? We'll find out... sometime tomorrow.
