Marcus Jordan Commits to Central Florida

Sorry Illinois fans, at least the winters will be nicer for MJ Jr. at UCF: “He made his decision based on two criteria,” said Tyrone Slaughter, Jordan’s coach at Whitney Young High in the Chicago area. “One was the ability to go in and make an immediate impact. He wanted to go in and have an opportunity to play right away at the collegiate level. Secondly, if it was a place that he went to on a visit that would immediately appeal to him. He immediately felt comfortable during his visit to UCF.”

    he must not ready for a school like unc,tough to follow in the old man footsteps when your not as rawly talented.

    Marcus would’t even play at UNC, I’ll actually be surprised if he makes that much noise, or becomes “The “Man” at UCF.

    USF is better, but whatever.

    Nice weather, beautiful coeds, a basketball team. Sounds good.

  • KnightTower

    Actually Boing, USF is better in football, not basketball. UCF beat USF this past year in basketball by 30 points.

    I’m a UCF alum, and I am stoked about this! This should help our program a lot! I’ll miss Jermaine Taylor tho. I’ve watched him every home game since his freshman year.

  • jillio

    he’s just trying to make a name for himself. he’s better than half of the dudes on the bench at unc

    This was a terrible decision, sorry. Marcus will mostly likely not play in the NBA. If that’s the case — then you take the best possible college available. How did he not pick Stanford? Are you serious? Check out Spin Serum for a take on the Marcus decision:
