Recruitment is steady for Jordan

A lot of miles have been put on the family car recently helping Aaron Jordan get as much information on his recruitment as possible.

Four-star wing Aaron Jordan is one of the top players in Illinois in the class of 2015. Recently Jordan and his family have been on a plethora of unofficial visits, and now the focus is turning to the season.

"My goals are just to play basketball well and accomplish big things," said Jordan of the upcoming year. "We have come together as a team and we can't wait to get out and play. We will really see what we are made of, and as a team we are ready for all of our hard work to pay off."

Recruiting wise things are remaining steady with Jordan.

"I've been staying in touch with Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, Northwestern, Purdue, Butler, Xavier, Creighton, and a few other schools," said Jordan.

Jordan has visited Illinois many times over the past few months, and he says every time he goes down there it is good.

"That was a good trip going down there and seeing them play," explained Jordan of a recent visit. "It is always a good time when you go down to Illinois and it is a good environment to be in."

Another school he has seen quite a bit is Wisconsin, and Jordan is hoping to make his way to Madison again during the season.

"Wisconsin was one of my first Big Ten offers," said Jordan of the program. "Bo Ryan is a real good coach and Coach (Greg) Gard is real good as well. I hope to get up there for a basketball game this season."

Beyond those two schools, Jordan also recently had a chance to visit Xavier and Indiana respectively for unofficial visits.

About Xavier, Jordan said, "The trips down to Xavier were really good. Getting to meet with Coach (Chris) Mack and seeing Musketeer Madness was really good. I enjoyed watching the dunk contest there for sure."

When it comes to the Hoosiers, Jordan said, "Bloomington is based on basketball. To see how much they are behind Indiana basketball is a great thing to see and obviously they are a really successful program."

Even with as many visits as he has taken, Jordan says it still might be a little while before he comes to a decision on where he wants to attend school.

"I am in no hurry so I will probably wait for a little while," said Jordan of a potential decision.

Currently Jordan is considered the No. 20 shooting guard in the class and the No. 77 player overall.
