High-major coaches are going to spend some time in Houston this fall watching big man DeAndre Jordan. But they won't be seeing him at Episcopal High School anymore. The 6-foot-11 prospect is looking for a new home for his senior year and he is sure to have some elite company in tow.
The four-star forward is searching for a new home, either in the Lone Star State or beyond. Jordan is still looking and he is bringing a solid list with him.
Jordan said he wanted to trim his list down after the Tournament of Champions but has since decided to put things on pause for the time being. Trips to Texas and Texas A&M have kept him busy with camps.
In the meantime, Jordan said both of the state schools are recruiting him hard as is Indiana, LSU, Kentucky "and a long list of others." Making a final five is not going to be an easy process, he said.
"I'll just look at their style of play," Jordan said. "And then I'll look at the staff and how they develop their players. I want to play at the best of my abilities."
The class of 2007 is short on guys like Jordan. He's long and athletic but runs the floor like the twin towers from Florida's National Championship team. Jordan plays even bigger than his 6-foot-11 frame, blocking and altering shots on defense and scoring the high percentage buckets on offense.
Jordan, one of the top big men in the class of 2007, showed flashes of brilliance at the Tournament of Champions and reminded folks on why so many high-majors have made the big man a top priority.
