Michael Jordan's oldest son is heading to Illinois...
Loyola athletic director Pat Mahoney sent out a press release this morning announcing that Jordan will be a preferred walk-on at Illinois.
"Illinois is a great school with a strong basketball program," Jordan said in the press release. "I look forward to receiving a great education at Illinois, and I also look forward to proving that I can play and compete at the Big Ten level."
Jordan said his final decision came down to Illinois and Valparaiso.
"Coac Drew and Valparaiso have a great program and a nice school, and I really appreciate how Coach Drew and his staff treated me throughout this process," Jordan said. "But after I worked out at Illinois, met with the coaching staff and the players, and toured the campus with my mon, I just felt more comfortable with U of I."
