Not many have heard much about Michael Jordan‘s son, well, as far as performance on the hardwood goes.

Marcus made ESPN last year when he refused to put on a pair of Adidas before suiting up for a UCF basketball game. UCF eventually bought out their contract with Adidas and are now a proud partner with Nike.

Jordan made another appearance on ESPN again in August of this year after tweeting that he had spent more than $50,000 on alcohol. He also was seen in a picture at a 21 year old and older night club.

Aside from his two minor incidents, Jordan has played stellar basketball for head-coach Donnie Jones and the UCF Knights this season.
In six games thus far Jordan is averaging 17 PPG, 2.7 RPG, 2.0 APG, and 1.5 SPG. The 6’3″ guard is shooting 56.0 percent from the field and 48.0 percent from three-point territory.

Needless to say, the Knights are currently undefeated on the early season, holding a 6-0 record, and recently won arguably the schools biggest victory in its history (defeating No. 16 ranked Florida).

Jordan leads UCF in points per game as well as steals per game and has seen a vast improvement in his overall game as compared to his freshman campaign.

The lefty guard has made ESPN’s top ten two times during his college career and continues to impress night in and night out.

Being Michael Jordan‘s son, you’d expect the young gun to carry a ton of weight on his shoulders knowing that if he doesn’t live up to the supreme expectations of his dad he will inevitably be a failure.

But that doesn’t seem like the case for the sophomore as he looks calm, cool, and collective on the court for UCF this season.

Whether you’ve heard of him or not, Marcus Jordan is slowly beginning to turn heads and make a name for himself.

Expect big things from the son of the all-time great Michael Jordan.
