Davonta Jordan sees stock pick up
As the winter months get colder and colder, the need for lead guards within the senior class becomes more and more urgent. Suiting up for the loaded Montverde Academy program and getting the start at the lead guard spot, Davonta Jordan continues to display immense value out top.
Silvio DeSousa, RJ Barrett, EJ Montgomery, Bruno Fernando, and Simi Shittu all headline the immensely talented bunch led by Kevin Boyle. However, it is Jordan that has begun to see his own recruitment soar within the past few weeks. A native of Cocoa, Florida, the 6-foot-2 facilitator has a college ready which he uses well in handling contact off the drive to the basket and in containing his opposing guard on the other end of the floor.
While what he does on the court doesn’t always wow those in attendance, it his ability to create for others within the half-court setting, defend various spots on the floor, and also convert within the traffic that displays just how productive he can be at the next level.
On the recruiting front, there are a few programs that have put in some work with him. “I have offers from Florida Gulf Coast, Tennessee Tech, Stetson, and South Alabama,” the senior mentioned. “I am also hearing from Texas A&M, South Carolina, Creighton, Florida State, Tulsa, Coastal Carolina, and Providence.”
Hoping to get a look at USC and Texas A&M upon the completion of his final season of high school play, if Jordan can get his grades straightened out, it would seem that the high-major interest that he has received thus far, could turn into priority attention and offers heading into the late singing period in April.
