Michael Jordan’s Son Close to Being an Illini

jeffrey_jordan_250.jpgIf for nothing but the press opportunities and having MJ attend some games, I sure hope that Coach Bruce Weber and the Fighting Illini can close the deal to bring Michael Jordan's boy onto the squad. Of the places he's looking at, the Illini program is clearly the best.

Wilmette Loyola senior guard Jeff Jordan is seriously considering walking on the Illinois basketball team. Jordan made the trip to Champaign with his mother Tuesday and played with the Illini during a pickup game at the Ubben Basketball Complex.

Jordan already has been accepted to the university, and the Illinois coaching staff talked with him about joining the team as a preferred walk-on. The 6-foot-2 Jordan is rated as a three-star recruit by Scout.com.

If Jordan would choose Illinois, he likely would arrive for the start of the summer semester, when the five-man recruiting class will reach campus. Thus, a decision is needed soon. But imagine MJ sitting on the sidelines next to the Orange Krush to see his son in an Illini uniform.

I don't see a downside. By all accounts, he's a decent player, a good kid, and having MJ on the sidelines would probably mean that the Illini will go to the Michael Jordan Nike "Jumpman" Line instead of the normal Nike clothes. This would be a lot of fun!
