When NBA legend Michael Jordan wants to see his sons play college basketball Orlando, Florida will be the destination. Marcus Jordan is entering his sophomore season at the University of Central Florida and now his older brother Jeff is joining.
Jeff is leaving Illinois after three ho-hum years with the Illini. The Air Jordan offspring averaged 1.6 points, 1.7 assists and 1.3 rebounds per game last season for Illinois.
"Jeff is a great young man and we look forward to him joining our basketball family," UCF head coach Donnie Jones said. "Jeff has a high basketball IQ and played in one of the best leagues in the country in the Big Ten."
Jeff Jordan may have basketball smarts and come from great bloodlines but there is nothing in that statement about what Jordan brings to the Knights as a player. Genetics only goes so far.
Here's the release from UCF: http://ucfathletics.cstv.com/sports/m-baskbl/spec-rel/062810aab.html
