CBKB: Michael Jordan's son, Marcus, picks Central Florida

Associated Press

CHICAGO The son of Michael Jordan has announced that he will be playing basketball at Central Florida next season.

Marcus Jordan, a 6-foot-3 and 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 Chicago Bulls' six-time champion father was elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame.

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.
