CINCINNATI, Ohio – The first day of the July evaluation period started off with a bang, as a host…
2010 Intro: Jordan McRae
The first glimpse of Jordan McRae came at the Pangos All-South Frosh/Soph camp in mid-October. The 6-foot-5, 175-pound sophomore wing dominated the event and found himself in the Top 20 all-star game. His terrific play carried into his high school season, where he led Hinesville (Ga.) Liberty County to 23-5 record and a trip to the Class AAA quarterfinals. "I think I played good throughout the season," the four-star prospect said. "I put up some nice points, but there's some things that I need to work on over the summer. [I need to improve] my speed. I'm trying to get faster and I'd like to get a lot stronger." McRae is a big time athlete that has no problem scoring around the rim. He's also equipped with a solid jump shot from deep and mid-range. These attributes are just a few reasons why he's picked up interest from high-major schools. Among the schools already involved with McRae are Florida, Wake Forest, UCLA, Oklahoma, East Carolina, Xavier and Tennessee. Xavier is the only school has offered a scholarship. Although the Volunteers haven't offered, they did get McRae on campus this past weekend for an unofficial visit. The talented 2010 prospect got a chance to see the campus and check out Tennessee's game against Kentucky. "It was great," McRae said. "I sat real close. I got to go to the locker room before and after the game. I got a chance to talk to [Coach Pearl] and I got a chance to talk to Chris Lofton too. Allan Houston was there too." McRae plans to run with the Atlanta Celtics 16's this coming spring and summer.
