After winning a state championship as a junior last season at Dunwoody (Ga.) High School, Kierre Jordan is looking to win some more championships at the college level. The 5-foot-9, 170-pound point guard made his college decision on Thursday and is looking forward to the challenges ahead of him.
Jordan committed to The Citadel and wants to jump into his final high school season to prepare for everything at awaits him in the Southern Conference.
"The one thing I liked about them was that I get a chance to run the team a lot like my high school team," Jordan said. "But I know that it's a totally different level. I'm willing to take that challenge and work hard so I can have the ball in my hands all four years. I want to get there and get the job done and win some championships there."
Jordan was a key member to Dunwoody's state championship run last year as a junior. He's a competent scorer with great leadership abilities and knows that people will be coming at him even harder in 2005.
"It's going to be twice as hard this year to win another state championship," Jordan said. "No matter what happens, people are always going to come right at us and play their hardest. We'll just have to play at our best and fight hard for it once again."
