Students watching UCF basketball games will now have a new high-profile player to cheer on — Marcus Jordan.
And according to KnightNews.com tipsters, Marcus Jordan has already been spotted in the UCF area. One tipster saw him at TD’s enjoying the VIP section, and another spotted him in the UCF Arena.
The son of NBA legend Michael Jordan comes from the Chicago area where he played in high school. The 6 feet 2 inch, 180 pound guard committed to play for the Knights in April, and was considered one of the top prospects in the nation at the time.
He averaged 10 points, 4.5 rebounds and 3.6 assist during his senior year at Whitney Young.
Insiders say UCF point guard A.J. Rompza had a big influence on Jordan’s decision to attend UCF, because Rompza and Jordan played together in high school and are good friends.
Rivals.com analysts said the UCF Knights may have the best recruiting class in Conference USA.
In addition to watching an improved basketball team, many students also look forward to seeing Michael Jordan at games cheering his son on along with them.
