St. John's opens a scholarship. Could it be for Rysheed Jordan?

A few weeks ago there were concerns about St. John's not having an open scholarship for Vaux senior guard Rysheed Jordan. The Red Storm were at capacity and something needed to break.

That something broke on Tuesday when Amir Garrett informed St. John's that he was leaving the program to pursue a baseball career. And now there may be room for Jordan, who will announce his decision on April 15.

Along with the Red Storm, Jordan is considering Temple and UCLA. Despite Ben Howland's departure, the Bruins remain in the mix. Kamal Yard, Jordan's AAU coach and adviser, said no other schools will enter the fold.

On Wednesday, Jordan was named the PIAA Class A Player of the Year and recipient of the Phoenix Award, given to the top Public League player.
