Michael Jordan's youngest son, Marcus Jordan (unranked, Scout, Rivals, ESPN) is a solid high-major prospect who brings an interesting game to the table. Marcus is strictly a role player, and what was most impressive about him here was his willingness to do all the dirty work, having a strong impact on the game in little ways.
At 6'3, Jordan is undersized for a shooting guard and doesn't appear to have much of a point guard's mentality or creative abilities, but he has a very strong build for his size and plays larger than he is. Athletically, Jordan is not incredibly explosive or quick, but he's still a decent athlete by college standards and he also has decent length.
Offensively, Jordan is a competent ball-handler and has a pretty nice jump shot, despite a tendency to fade on his shots a bit. He has range out to the three-point line and can shoot the ball pulling up or spotting up. He didn't show much attacking the basket here, but did hit two nice right-handed floaters in the lane. He isn't a player who imposes his will on the game much offensively, getting most of his shots in the flow of the offense and picking his spots wisely.
Defensively is where Jordan shines, showing very good instincts and a great nose for the ball, breaking up plays and attacking the boards. He has no hesitance to use his strong frame to fight for a ball in a crowd, and pulled in two steals this game doing so.
At this stage of his development, Jordan doesn't wow you in any one area, but he has the type of solid all-around game and workmanlike mentality that will likely help him develop into a valuable rotation player for a competitive high-major school.
