CHICAGO (AP) -- Michael Jordan's youngest son says he'll play
basketball at Central Florida next season.
Marcus Jordan, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound senior guard at Chicago
Whitney Young, made up his mind after visiting the campus in
Orlando, Fla., last week.
Whitney Young coach Tyrone Slaughter says Marcus Jordan was
looking for a place he could play, have an impact and feel
comfortable on campus.
His decision came Monday, the same day his father, a six-time
champion with the Chicago Bulls, was elected to the Basketball Hall
Last month, the younger Jordan scored a game-high 19 points to
lead Whitney Young to a 69-66 victory over Waukegan in the Illinois
Class 4A championship.
His older brother, Jeff Jordan, plays basketball for the
University of Illinois.
