Jordan Wright is our number one ranked player in the 2019 class. We have heard so much about him over the last few months. His name has had as much if not more buzz then Javante Smart had heading into high school.
Not many people who watch Jordan play realize how young he is. He plays inside and outside and is not afraid to go after rebounds. We asked Jordan a few questions and this is how it went.
What do you consider to be the strong points in your game?
“I consider the strong points in my game to be my ballhandling, vision, and IQ. With my ball handling ability and vision I am able to get to the basket or create for my teammates. I strive off of getting them open looks and involved.”
What colleges have reached out and expressed interest in you?
What parts of your game are you working on this fall to make you a better player?
“Conditioning & shooting. I want to start playing at a faster pace and become more of an all- around player. I think that will come with being well-conditioned. My shot wasn't as consistent as I would have liked it to be over the summer, so I'm focusing heavily on that.”
During the game what do you try to focus on doing Offensively? Defensively?
“On offense I try to focus on getting my teammates involved first, and let them open things up later for me. On defense, I focus on rebounding and playing great help defense.”
How do you believe your role will change this high school season for your team?
“I think my role will not change much this season going in to high school; I believe I will play the same role as I did over the summer. My role in this upcoming high school season will be to score and rebound well.”
How tall are you and what skills at that height do you think impressed college coaches this summer?
“I'm 6'4 and at this height my ball handling grabbed the attention of many coaches.”
What is your GPA and have you taken the ACT yet and if so what is your highest score so far?
“My GPA was a 4.86 at Rummel because of honors classes, and I took the ACT in seventh grade and got a 19.”
