New 2012 Commitment

With 3 open scholarships for the class of 2012, UNCG has used one of them on 5'-10" PG Jordan Potts (Columbus, OH). According to Rivals, the Northland HS senior picked the Spartans over James Madison, Western Kentucky, Bethune-Cookman and a large group of other mid-majors.

- ESPN Recruiting rates Jordan at 80.

Strengths: A sturdy point guard whose body type borders on stocky, Potts runs the teams and distributes the ball for a highly talented All Ohio Red team. He rarely looked to create anything off the dribble and was typically content to keep the ball moving along the perimeter.

- Jordan's former HS teammate is Jarred Sullinger who was a McDonald's All-American and now plays at Ohio State.

- Jordan's AAU program All-Ohio Red won the 2011 Under-17 National Chamionship.

Here's a Youtube clip of Jordan from several years ago.

- UNCG won't released any information about Jordan until he officially signs his National Letter of Intent to play for the Spartans. We will post a link to that article when it becomes available.

-Welcome to the Spartans, Jordan !!!

For real?? He's a "steal" for the Spartans...

I think that after you see him play a little, you'll understand why the G went and got this guy!

Pure Leader...fearless...!!!

Just ask Marcus Paige (UNC), Tyler Lewis (NCS), and Kevin Ferrell (Indiana) who played against him this past summer...saw him at the Peach Jam this past summer and he's got a mean streak. We will fall in love with him in 2013.

Also just went and saw some additional intel on Web on Potts.

Played with Sullinger & Weatherspoon (OSU)as well as T. Burke (Michigan) and Cornley (Indiana-football/brother of hoopster J. Cornley, Penn State) as a freshman; the last 3 Mr. Basketball's in Ohio are from this same school; team apparently is loaded again and has chance to be #1 in the state of Ohio again this year.

3 Year Starter; PG that played out of position during school ball; took his AAU team to back to back national championship games in Orlando.

Let's not throw him to the dogs yet.
