New List For Talented Upstate Forward

Reporter Mike Sullivan has an updated story on Jordan Stevens ...

Jordan Stevens, a 6-foot-5 1/2, 191-pound swingman from Saratoga Springs High School in Saratoga Springs, New York, is among the more regarded players in the 2009 class.

Stevens demonstrated his skills this past summer with Jim Hart's Albany City Rocks AAU program. He is a versatile player, who has the skill to score from mid-range but also possesses good court vision in spotting open teammates.

"His recruiting has really picked up," said Hart via a telephone interview. "Western Kentucky, Rutgers, Rhode Island, Georgia Tech, Pittsburgh, Providence, Fordham, St. Francis, Delaware, Siena, and St. Joe's are some the of the schools that have shown interest."

Jordan has a couple more seasons to continue the progress in his individual game. So it's likely the schools mentioned above will watch how he improves in his junior year at Saratoga Springs High School.

"I think he does a lot of things well on the court and that is what makes him an attractive player," Hart said. "He has the skills to play division one college basketball and be a player that can contribute too."

The level of Stevens' recruiting will be determined how much improvement he makes over the next season. We will keep you posted on this site in how he progresses.
