Young Point Guard Performs Well at Auburn

Class of 2017 basketball prospect Jordan Goldwire is an athletic point guard for Norcross High.

Norcross, Ga.--A young point guard with outstanding quickness, Jordan Goldwire was one of the more impressive performers at Bruce Pearl’s elite basketball camp on the Auburn campus.

“I talked to a couple of the Auburn coaches and they said they like the way I play and stuff like that,” said Goldwire, a 16-year-old who is in the 2017 recruiting class.

“I think I played pretty well at the camp,” he said. “I got my teammates involved for open shots. I tried to get in the lane and play good defense.”

A starter on a Norcross High School team that posted a 27-4 record last season, Goldwire said that he has high expectations for the upcoming season. “We actually played in the Elite Eight and lost to the team that won it,” he said of last season’s state championship playoffs.

“We have got a good shot at state this season,” he added. “All of us can defend and we are going to play a national schedule.”

A prospect who focuses on basketball throughout the year, this summer he played AAU ball with the Alabama Challenge.

He has attracted attention from a variety of Division I offers, but is still waiting on first scholarship offer.

A true point guard at six-feet, 160 pounds, Goldwire said “distributing” the basketball is a big part of his game. “I just try to get my teammates involved and get them the ball in the spots they like,” he said. “I can also hit the open shots.”
