NBPA Camp: Jordan Mickey Spotlight

Five-star forward Jordan Mickey made a recent three school visit tour and came away very impressed. One more visit should also be coming shortly.

Five-star forward Jordan Mickey from Arlington (Tex.) Grace Prep took a recent string of visits through the Midwest to the East. Then Mickey performed well at NBPA Camp, and continues his rise that he started during a very strong high school season.

At 6-foot-7 with good length, athleticism, and the ability to score inside and out, Mickey is one of the tougher matchups in the 2013 class. According to Mickey the NBPA Top 100 Camp was a good experience for him.

"It is great to be here with all of these great players and to learn from the NBA current and former players here," said Mickey at the camp.

Recruiting wise Mickey took a recent visit tour to Louisville, Ohio State, and West Virginia. All three stops impressed him quite a bit.

"It is a great place," said Mickey of Louisville. "They have great people, the coaches are great, and the players are all great kids."

After Louisville he made his way up to Columbus to check out the Buckeyes.

"Ohio State, I saw their facilities," he explained. "They are doing some re-models right now so I couldn't see everything. We went and walked around campus and we saw the academic center. It was all very nice."

Following his time in Columbus, Mickey and his father made the trip East to Morgantown to see what West Virginia had to offer.

"It was a great trip," said Mickey. "I got to sit down and talk to Coach (Bob) Huggins, and I saw the guys workout so I saw how they run their offense and do their individuals. Also we got to go around the campus."

Along with those three schools, Mickey said Kentucky, Providence, Texas, Florida State, Missouri, Texas Tech, Texas A&M, and Arkansas are all showing him attention.

While everything hasn't been finalized, Mickey is expecting to make his next visit to Arkansas to see their campus.

"I am expecting to go see how they run their stuff and talk to the coach and get to know him," said Mickey of a trip to Arkansas. "Also I want to see their plans for me and how they think I can fit in."

Currently Mickey says that he has no leader, but did admit that Louisville seemed to be recruiting him the hardest.

For now Mickey is just getting as much information as he can about each school, and says a decision could come in the next few months.

"I will probably make my decision at the end of July or the beginning of August," said Mickey.
