Jeff Jordan Leaving UCF Basketball Team

Orlando Sentinel Staff Report

Michael Jordan's eldest son, Jeff, has decided to leave the University of Central Florida basketball team, citing personal reasons. Jeff Jordan had previously played on Illinois and transferred to UCF, playing with his younger brother Marcus. The younger Jordan leads UCF in scoring, averaging 17.2 ppg this year as a junior. Jeff had seen his role diminish slightly since the reinstatement of PG AJ Rompza into the Knights line-up. Nonetheless, the elder Jordan had been a key bench player for UCF and averaged 2.7 ppg in 21.2 mpg through 13 games. Has to be tough to be Michael Jordan's son, wish Jeff the best in whatever he decides is the next step.
