Michael Jordan may soon have a reason to come watch games at UCF Arena. Jordan's youngest son, Marcus, visited the Knights on Friday on an official recruiting trip according to Rivals.com. And a source with UCF said he enjoyed his visit to the Orlando campus.
Jordan, a senior shooting guard at Whitney Young High School in Deerfield, Illinois, recently led his team to the Class 4A Illinois state championship. The 6-2, 180 pound shooting guard scored a game high 19 points and sank four late free throws in the state championship game to help his team defeat Waukegan, 69-66.
Jordan wouldn't be the first player to come to Orlando from Whitney Young. One of his former high school teammates, A.J. Rompza started at point guard for the Knights last season.
According to Rivals.com, UCF is the only school Jordan has visited but he has also garnered interest from Miami, FLorida, Michigan State, Illinois, Iowa and Wright State with offers coming from the Knights and Hurricanes.
If Jordan decides to sign with the Knights, as a three star recruit, he would join Orlando Christian Preps Keith Clanton as one of the highest rated recruits ever to play at UCF.
