Four-star 2008 prospect Jordan Theodore has the skills to make a significant impact at the next level as a scoring point guard. Presently, Theodore, 6-foot, 170-pound, has three schools at the top of his list.
Memphis, Gonzaga and Marquette are my top three schools," said Theodore. "They are all guards schools who let their guards play. I also like their coaches a lot.
"I'm also looking to win. I don't want to just go out there and score a bunch of points and lose."
Joining Theodore's top three on his school list are St. John's, Seton Hall, Rutgers, and Cincinnati. All schools have offered except for Memphis.
Averaging 22 points, seven assists, six rebounds and three steals, Theodore has an astutely simplistic mental approach to the game.
"My focus is defense," he said. "I want to get the big stop and get the ball for our team. Then it's about getting the ball in the hole, weather it's by me scoring or dishing the ball off."
Gonzaga, the one school that does not geographically fit Theodore's list, will get an unofficial visit from its top 2008 perimeter target in the spring.
Jordan Theodore scouting report:
A compactly built and dynamic point guard, Theodore has the total package. He can score from all three levels, set up scorers and snag rebounds. A wicked crossover dribble is his signature move.
