Rysheed Jordan's interest in UCLA is not centered on who the head coach is, but more so on the university as a whole, said Jordan's AAU coach and adviser Kamal Yard.

Therefore, everything remains the same for the Vaux senior guard as he nears his college decision despite the Bruins firing of coach Ben Howland. Jordan will announce his decision on April 15 and a sign a letter of intent two days later to attend Temple, UCLA or St. John's.

"He likes the campus, the facilities they have out there and the academic aspect," said Yard about Jordan's draw to UCLA.

Jordan led Vaux to the Class A State title earlier this month and is rated a five-star recruit by ESPN.
