One of the top point guards in the class of 2014, Jordan McLaughlin is a serious target for high-major programs for good reason.
A 5-foot-11 product of Etiwanda (Calif.) High, McLaughlin ranks No. 43 in the 2014 Rivals150. This scouting video from the NBPA Top 100 Camp illustrate what he's capable of.
Given that he's a tad under 6 foot tall, quickness plays a huge part in the four-star guard's game. He is good going to his right or his left, and he is a fearless driver who has outstanding body control when he gets into the lane.
Maybe most important, McLaughlin is a dangerous shooter from deep who can score points in bunches. Because of his ability to shoot, defenders cannot afford to give him a cushion and play for the drive. They have to respect his jump shot, and because of that he has more options on the offensive end.
During July, McLaughlin will hit the summer circuit with Cameron Murray's Prodigy Elite Hoops and a throng of coaches would follow, but he already has things cut down to a group of eight programs.
McLaughlin is considering Connecticut, Indiana, Gonzaga, Kansas, San Diego State, UCLA, UNLV and USC. While things can change, the SoCal schools appear to be in the driver's seat and it is looking like McLaughlin is likely to stay on the West Coast.
