Upstate Swingman Shows Skills In New Jersey

Reporter Mike Sullivan has a story on Jordan Stevens from upstate New York ...

Jordan Stevens, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound shooting guard from Saratoga Springs High School in Saratoga, New York, competed this past weekend for the Albany City Rocks AAU program at the Joe Brown Memorial Tournament held on the campus of Seton Hall University in South Orange, New Jersey.

Stevens, a lefty 2009 prospect, seems smooth on the court when he handles the ball or makes a pass to an open teammate. Though he recorded just six points in a pool game against the TW Bloodhounds (team from Canada), Jordan showed a calmness to his game when pressured or in transition.

Albany City Rocks program director Jim Hart has already stated Rutgers and Albany have offered a free ride. There is also interest from Marist, Siena, Seton Hall, Syracuse, Georgia Tech, Fordham, St. Bonaventure, and Rhode Island.

Stevens has a soft touch from the outside and a high basketball IQ. He plays hard at both ends of the court and has a good understanding of game situations.

Jordan is expected to travel with the Albany City Rocks AAU program throughout the summer.
