Jordan Getting B1G Interest

Aaron Jordan, Plainfield East (IL) High School has been a popular target for schools this spring and has now collected two Big Ten offers.

Plainfield East (IL) High School and Illinois Stars shooting guard Aaron Jordan has been a popular target for coaches during the spring.

While the talented 6-foot 3 guard had received eight offers, just two were from power conference teams, Wisconsin and Creighton.

That changed yesterday when Jordan picked up his second Big Ten offer from Illinois.

I recently spoke with one of Jordan's AAU coaches who said that a few were recruiting Jordan harder than others.

"Illinois, ISU, and Wisconsin are the strongest right now."

Jordan took an unofficial visit to Butler last month and I wanted to check in to see if Butler was tracking him this summer.

"Butler was not there in Chicago," Jordan's coach said. "He needs to meet with Miller. His last meeting was mostly all Terry (Johnson) and Brad (Stevens)."

Butler will need to pick up the attention for Jordan soon if they want to stay in his recruitment, although the Bulldogs certainly have other viable options at shooting guard in the Class of 2015 including K.J. Walton and Andrew Fleming, who both could be in line for an offer soon.
