CHICAGO (AP) -Michael Jordan's youngest son says he'll play basketball at Central Florida next season.
Marcus Jordan, a 6-foot-3, 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 father, a six-time champion with the Chicago Bulls, was elected to 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.
His older brother, Jeff Jordan, plays basketball for the University of Illinois.
