Jordan, a 6-2 guard at Loyola Academy in Wilmette, Ill., said in a news release Friday he chose Illinois over Valparaiso.
``After I worked out at Illinois, (met) with the coaching staff and the players, and toured the campus with my mom, I just felt more comfortable with U of I,'' he said.
Jordan was a three-year starter at Loyola Academy and two-year All Catholic League player.
He told Illinois coach Bruce Weber of his plans on Wednesday. NCAA rules bar Weber or his staff from commenting on walk-on players before they enroll.
As a walk-on, Jordan will not sign a letter of intent, meaning his commitment is nonbinding.
