18 year-old Jeffrey Jordan is a walk-on player for the University of Illinois basketball team on an academic scholarship. That is as low key as he can be considering he is the son of the greatest player to have played the game. At 6’2”, he is four inches shorter than his legendary dad.
Jeffrey knows he will have to prove himself to assure a spot on a Big Ten team that went 23-10 before losing in the first round of the NCAA tournament last year.
We can also look forward to Jeffrey’s little brother Marcus, who is two year’s younger but a bit bigger and is said to have more potential, coming up in the future. The brothers played together at the Loyola Academy, a 98-year-old Jesuit high school in Chicago’s north suburbs.
