Temple target Rysheed Jordan is the winner of the sixth annual Phoenix Award.

The Phoenix Club of Philadelphia was created in 2008 by Michael Horsey, a local certified public accountant, to recognize the most outstanding senior basketball player in the Public League.

Jordan, a 6-foot-4 point guard at Roberts Vaux High School, averaged 24.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, 4.3 assists and 3.3 steals. He also made 53 three-pointers while leading Vaux to the PIAA Class A state championship.

 Jordan is regarded as the nation’s 22d-best college prospect in the Class of 2013, according ESPN. One of the nation’s top uncommitted players, he’s narrowed his list of schools to Temple, St. John’s and UCLA. Jordan will announce his decision on April 15.
