ESPN Points to Jordan at Number Five in Upcoming Draft
Watch him while you can Ags, this kid is going PRO. Quickly. Chad Ford currently has him number 5 on his top 100 behind kids like Michael Beasley, Derrick Rose and O.J. Mayo. He is a legit seven footer and is averaging close to a double-double with only twenty minutes of playing time per game.
He is shooting a ridiculous 80% from the field. 80%. Seriously. Of course, if you've seen him you'll quickly realize that he gets all his action from dishes and putbacks. Right now his game lacks the polish of his higher-ranked fellow freshman, but big man usually take longer to develop anyway.
DeAndre is still working to find his own patented post moves. He'll need one or two if he is ever to become a legitimate threat and offensive option during upcoming conference play. So far he hasn't needed one. He just jumps over everyone to grab rebounds and rattles the backboard.
Saturday, he'll match up against the LSU Tigers. These aren't the Glenn "Big Baby" Davis Tigers of last couple years, but they're still a talented, athletic team. Look for DeAndre and the Ags to give them a warm welcome in Reed Arena and improve on their 10th place national ranking.
If you don't know him, you will.
