Five-star PG picks up Kansas offer

Head Coach Bill Self and his staff at the University of Kansas hit the recruiting trail hard during the past two weekends, as the NCAA instituted its spring evaluation period, and one prospect who piqued their interest was five-star point guard Rysheed Jordan.

Wednesday, the Jayhawks extended the Philadelphia product a scholarship offer. Rysheed Jordan learned of the offer during a phone call with Kansas head coach Bill Self, who let him know he'd be keeping an eye on him at tournaments in the future as well.

Jordan said the Jayhawks have been recruiting him since his junior basketball season started, noting that they would be in his top five before he made his decision.

"I'm gonna narrow it down in July," he said.

A speed merchant on the court, Jordan is off to a strong start to the AAU season with his squad, Philly Pride.

Here's what Scout.com national recruiting analyst Brian Snow had to say about his performance last weekend during Day One of the Hoop Group Philly Jam Fest:

"An absolute jet with the ball, Jordan has great size for the position and excellent athleticism. He can get to places on the court with his dribble that very few other players in the country can. Now he did really struggle to shoot the ball, and then also had a few too many turnovers, but there is no doubting the physical talent that he possesses from the point guard position."

"I think I'm playing good," Jordan said. "But I could play better. Probably my jump shot (needs the most work."
