The first national signing period came and passed and Rysheed Jordan remains on the market. But, the top remaining point guard in the country is getting a little closer to making his pick while improving his play on the floor.
A 6-foot-4 point guard at Philadelphia (Pa.) Vaux, Jordan currently ranks No. 29 nationally in the 2013 Rivals150 and he thinks he's gotten a bit better.
"I feel that my game is getting better," Jordan told Rivals.com. "I still have to improve on more. I think I've improved on my jump shot and being unselfish wit the ball.
Then again, what makes Jordan a high level prospect is his ability to get to the rack. His explosive first step translates to the next level in a big way and he likes knowing that he can always attack the rim.
"That's like a go to move that I can go to anytime," said Jordan. "I can always get to the basket."
Lately, though, what people want to know about is any direction that Jordan may be leaning in. He's down to Temple, St. John's and UCLA and took his final visit to Westwood a week and a half ago.
"The visit was great," said Jordan of Westwood. "The campus was great. I liked the school. I talked to the academic advisers and they were great."
Jordan also spoke about each of his other two finalists beginning with Temple.
"Growing up I used to always go to Temple games," said Jordan. "Seeing them play more and more every day I started liking them more."
With Steve Lavin at the helm St. John's has proven they will put athletes on the floor.
"I like that they get up and down the floor," said Jordan of the Red Storm. "They share the ball an they have pretty good big guys who can catch the ball and finish."
So far, Jordan has been unable to set a timetable for making a decision. He feels that he's seen everything he needs to see from each program and just needs time to decide.
"Maybe I'll wake up one day and make a decision,' said Jordan. "I'm just not ready yet. I'm just taking my time."
