Rysheed Jordan is heading to St. John’s

St. John’s picked up the first member of their 2013 recruiting class on Thursday, as 6-foot-4 point guard Rysheed Jordan picked the Johnnies over UCLA and Temple.

Jordan is a Philly native and a five-star recruit that was recently named the Class A and Public League Player of the Year. He’s a top 30 recruit and the point guard of the future for St. John’s.

You can find his Rivals page here.

Jordan is more of a scorer than a pure point guard at this point in his development, as his size and athleticism allows him to get to the rim and finish almost at will. He should be a nice addition to a back court that already includes Jamal Branch and Phil Greene. With basically everyone else set to return, and Orlando Sanchez due to become eligible, St. John’s looks like a team that could make a run at a tournament bid this season.

    “St. Johns looks like a team who could make a run at a tournament bid”???

    They look like a team that can make a serious run at the new Big East title. Jordan is an absolute stud, Sampson is gonna be an All Big East team member, Sanchez gives us another forward with serious skill and God’s Gift will be back to provide the one thing this team lacks; a genuine big man. If Harrison returns, and we haven’t heard anything that he won’t be back, this team will be dangerous.

    The only question now is since St. John’s didn’t have any open scholarships for Jordan, who do they send packing?
