Since his high school days, Marcus Jordan has been passionate about basketball. Together with his brother Jeffrey, the duo rose to lead their Loyola Academy basketball team to conference championships. The season marked one of the school’s best records.
Jordan continued to excel when he was transferred to Whitney Young High School, guiding the team to victory in the 2009 Illinois 4A Championship.
In the game against Waukegan, Jordan delivered a spectacular performance of 19 points and was subsequently named Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
After earning his high school diploma, ESPNU rated Jordan as the 60th-best shooting guard in the United States. During the season, he was averaging 10 points, 3.2 assists, and 4.5 rebounds per game.
Even when he enrolled at the University of Central Florida, Jordan continued to play basketball, though his decision to select Nike Air Jordan instead of Adidas resulted in UCF losing its sponsorship with the latter. Jordan showed his dedication to his father with this decision.
Jordan’s collegiate career started in 2009-10, when he made an immediate impact by averaging 8.0 points per game. In November 2010, the freshman kicked off his second season with UCF, where he scored a career-high 28 points in the opening game against the University of West Florida.
Although he was an important part of the team, Marcus decided to leave UCF basketball in August 2012, taking a cue from his brother Jeffrey, who had left the team just a few months prior. He then remained enrolled at UCF and achieved his graduate degree in hospitality management by 2013.
