"Darren Jordan is going to be hard to beat," said Magic coach David Grace when asked about the best players in the state.
Jordan has already taken an unofficial visit to Arizona and has been in contact with Wildcat coaches although no scholarship offer is on the table at this time.
"They're talking to me," Jordan said. "During my junior year they should be recruiting me more."
Right now Jordan is just starting to showcase the abilities that should have him among the better point guards on the West Coast. Jordan has great quickness and is an aggressive defender. He can light it up and scores both inside and out. Despite some nice skills Jordan's game has a ways to go and he knows it.
"I've got to work on my defense, my left hand and I've got to understand the game more," Jordan confessed.
Jordan has a nice stroke, but with the Magic he got most of his points from penetrating the lane.
"We design the plays for Ty Morrison on the outside," said Jordan of his AAU team's strategies. "I just get open when I can, but mostly they want me to penetrate."
