Make no mistake about it, DeAndre Jordan will be one of the most recruited big men in the class of 2007. The 6-foot-10, 215-pound forward from Houston's Episcopal High School has watched several of the nation's top hoops programs come through the doors of his gym and watch him work out over the last two weeks.
Jordan, the No. 14 ranked player in the class of 2007, made a splash on the national recruiting scene at the Kingwood Classic where he showed off his great athleticism and overall potential.
Since the spring, high-major programs have made Jordan a priority in the junior class. Just last week, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, LSU, Kansas, Michigan State, Baylor and Texas A&M all came in to see him, Jordan said.
He's holding offers from Arizona, Texas, Texas A&M and Virginia Tech.
With the coaches coming in at a daily rate, the five-star prospect said he's not spending too much time thinking about recruiting. Jordan said he doesn't have any plans for unofficial visits. In the meantime, he is preparing for the upcoming season.
"We have a good team this year. We're young but was have a lot of people back from last year's team," Jordan said. "I'm thinking we're going to be pretty good. That's all that I'm doing - just getting ready."
