Jordan Picks ACC School; Will Sign Wednesday

Pierre Jordan has flirted with Florida State for a while, and the 6-foot point guard finally gave them a verbal commitment Monday afternoon.

Pierre Jordan is finally off the board. After mulling over a number of schools the 6-foot point guard gave Florida State the nod on Monday.

"It's a good fit for me," Jordan said. "It's the best fit for me. I think it can get me better prepared for life itself and I'd be down there with a great group of coaches and in great atmosphere. I think I can get a great education there too."

"Florida State has been recruiting him and coach Hamilton watched him throughout the month of July," Winfred Jordan, who is Pierre's father, said. "He has been down there a bunch for unofficial visits and he liked the program and what he saw in Coach Hamilton."

Jordan had a number of options, but ultimately it came down to Florida State and Virginia Commonwealth. Central Florida, LSU, Marshall and Butler were also involved in his recruitment.

"What the coach said to me during his recruitment is that they had another point guard, a kid by the name of Luke Loucks, but that he needed two point guards and he liked Pierre when he saw them with the Atlanta Celtics this summer," the elder Jordan said.

"He liked the way Pierre ran the team and he thinks he's a leader that makes intelligent decisions and can knock down open jump shots," he continued. "He thought that Pierre would be a great fit for their program and what they are trying to accomplish."

Jordan is the most recent class of 2008 prospect to commit to Florida State. Deveidas Dulkys committed to FSU last week and Xavier Gibson gave the Seminoles a verbal the week prior. Luke Loucks is also on board.

Jordan plans to sign his Letter of Intent at a press conference Wednesday afternoon.
