Big man listing the Cats

DeAndre Jordan might be a name you haven't heard much of yet, but you soon will. The 6-foot-9, 200 pounder will soon be a household name.

On day two at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions, Jordan played well and showed off a very impressive shot blocking ability in his first game of the day.

"I like doing that," Jordan said. "When guards bring it in they think they are going to get the And 1 and I'll go up and block it."

In his game against, Inner Strength from Atlanta, Georgia, he blocked five shots in a five minute stretch. And it's not just about the shots he blocks he adjusts many more and is a presence in the paint on the defensive end.

While he is remarkable on the defense end, he's not too shabby on offense either. He has a soft touch around the basket is strong enough finish in the paint.

With Jordan performing so well the recruiting mail is pouring in. Jordan said that he is being recruited by Arizona, Arizona State, Florida State Oklahoma, North Carolina, UConn, Georgia Tech, Texas, Texas A&M, Georgia, Cincinnati, Kansas and Kentucky.

Jordan, who plays AAU ball with the Houston Swoosh, has been offered by Arizona, Texas A&M, Virginia Tech, and Georgia Tech.

With so many schools recruiting him Jordan just wants to take his time and find out what each school has to offer.

"Everybody is even right now. I don't have any favorites right now," Jordan said. I don't know much about all the schools. Everybody is at a medium right now."

The Episcopal HS product, who averaged 15 points and 6 blocks a game last year, said that there a few things that will factor in his decision, but that his mom and coach will play a very important role.

"The decision is going to be between me my mom and my coach, because those are the people that have helped me my whole life," Jordan responded when asked what will factor into his decision. I don't know how I'm going to decide but I know it's going to be between those two people."
