He currently has offers from Kansas, Maryland, N.C. State, St. John’s, Maryland, Temple, La Salle, Pittsburgh, Rutgers, Seton Hall, St. Joseph’s, Alabama, Drexel, Villanova, George Mason, Georgetown, Marquette, and Virginia. Rysheed Jordan is a hot prospect on the east coast, especially among teams in the Big East or in that area (northeast).

Rysheed Jordan is also getting interest from Arizona, Penn State, and Kentucky thus far. His AAU team is the PTP Elite, and he plays high school basketball at Vaux Roberts.

The 6’4″, 185 pound PG has heavy interest from Maryland and Temple, but there are ten other teams who are definitely in the mix. Jordan’s recruitment is definitely wide open at this stage, and the Kansas Jayhwaks are one of twelve teams viewed as having a decent chance at adding the five-star 2013 recruit.

One of the top 25 recruits in the nation, he is the sixth best point guard in the 2013 class and the sixth best player in the region. Rysheed Jordan is a recruit from Philly that everyone wants, and he will be an impact player at the collegiate level.

Jordan has great size for the point guard position and is actually viewed as a combo guard by 247Sports. He is, however, a point guard at this stage and has the terrific passing to prove it. He has built up his offensive game and has the build to be a quality defensive player.
