Jordan Picks Up Eighth Offer from Bo

Class of 2015 guard Aaron Jordan, Plainfield East (IL) High School visited Butler last week and camped at Wisconsin this weekend.

Class of 2015 shooting guard Aaron Jordan, Plainfield East (IL) High School has had a busy spring. After an impressive opening session of AAU for the Illinois Stars, Jordan took time to visit Butler last week and camped at Wisconsin this weekend, where he picked up his eighth scholarship offer.

Previously Jordan had received offers from Creighton, Illinois State, Fairfield, Hampton, San Jose State, Illinois-Chicago, and Valparaiso.

Jordan was offered by Wisconsin on Sunday after attending his first elite camp.

"We went through a couple of drills for the first half of the camp, which included 3-on-3, moving to get open for a shot, and other things to help a player's game, then later-on after lunch, we played games throughout the rest of the day," Jordan said. "I shot really well. My 3-point shot was really good this weekend. My overall play, reading the floor with everything going on and my IQ were great."

After the camp, Coach Ryan sat down with Jordan and offered him his scholarship.

"I talked to Bo Ryan and Coach Gard," Jordan said. "He (Bo Ryan) told me he loved my game, my IQ, and my level of play, and said that I could play at Wisconsin."

Jordan also had a chance to look around Madison for the first time.

"It was my first time going to Wisconsin," Jordan said. "I toured the Kohl Center and it is pretty big, which I liked. Me and my dad just drove around Madison and it is a beautiful city. I loved just coming up there."

In addition to his eight offers, Jordan has been getting interest from Illinois, Northwestern, Butler, and a few others.

Jordan visited Indianapolis and Butler this past week.

"Butler was different. Everything was right there," Jordan explained. "That is also a type of campus I liked too. I liked Coach Stevens, he has a good track record. I look forward to learning more about Butler in the future."

While Butler didn't offer immediately, the 6-foot-4 shooting guard said that the Bulldogs would be following him this summer.

Jordan now has more visits on tap for later this summer, as well as another session of AAU.

"I will probably be doing some open gyms," Jordan said. "I will be going to Illinois, Illinois State, Valpo, and maybe Creighton early in August. In July we will be at Riverside Brookfield, then we are going to Florida for a showcase, and then we will end our season in Fort Wayne."
