Pierre Jordan will play in the ACC after all. The 6-foot point guard from Dunwoody (Ga.) High School has made his decision and will sign with his future school on Wednesday.
According to Dunwoody head coach Scott Bracco, Jordan committed to Florida State on Monday.
"He fell in love with the campus and the coaching staff there. I think it is a really great fit for him," Bracco said.
Jordan, a three-star prospect, verbally committed to Clemson as a sophomore but opted to re-open his recruitment less than a year later. Over the course of time, Jordan had great success on the hardwood and saw his recruitment intensify.
The Seminoles battled with LSU, Central Florida, Marshall, Butler and Winthrop in the end. Bracco said he knows what kind of player Florida State is getting.
"The bottom line is this: Pierre Jordan is a winner," Bracco said.
Jordan has helped Dunwoody win two state championships and has a 85-14 record while running the point for the Georgia powerhouse over the last three seasons. Dunwoody is one of the top programs in Georgia this year and has the personnel to potentially win a third state championship this season. Jordan also helped the Atlanta Celtics claim the adidas Super 64 in Las Vegas in July.
"Florida State is getting the top point guard in the state of Georgia. I think that tells you what I think of Pierre Jordan," Bracco said. "Pierre makes great decisions with the basketball and does a great job of playing at any kind of pace. He's a top shooter, one of the best in the state of Georgia. He's a shooter with serious range and really unselfish with the ball."
Jordan will sign his National Letter of Intent at a press conference at 2:45 p.m. at Dunwoody on Wednesday along with LSU commitment and top 100 player Delwan Graham. Fellow Dunwoody player and Florida State target Chris Singleton will announce his decision. He is strongly considering the Seminoles and Kentucky.
