Jordan Potts commits to UNC-Greensboro

20 Sep

One of Ohio’s top guard prospects is off the board as 2012 Columbus Northland PG Jordan Potts gave his verbal commitment to the University of North Carolina-Greensboro yesterday. After taking an official visit down to UNC-G this past weekend it became clear to Potts that it would be his new home. “I made the decision on my way home Saturday night. I got back home and talked to my family to make sure it was the right fit and then we made the call,” Potts said.

The 6’0 Potts chose Greensboro over Radford and Bethune-Cookman. “It was tough telling Radford because I had developed such a great relationship with their staff but at the end of the day UNC-Greensboro was just the best fit for me.”

A fiery competitor and dual threat as a set up man or a scorer Potts is an accomplished winner. As a freshman he won the State Championship at Northland with Jared Sullinger and company while also helping lead his team to the title game last season as a junior. This summer he was also a big piece of the puzzle helping his AAU team, All-Ohio Red, win the National Championship in Orlando.

That type of winning attitude and big game experience, to go along with his on court game, should make him an impact player right away in college. “They want me to play right away, they basically said it’s up to me how much I play my freshman year. I just need to go in there and do what I do.”

As a true PG that is a good decision maker and a big time shooter from three point range, as well as a good defender, Potts’ game translates nicely to the major expectations of college coaches. With Columbus Northland having 4 seniors expected to be at Division I schools next year there should be plenty of winning left to do before he arrives in North Carolina.

Notes:

  • ’12 Berlin Hiland wing Dylan Kaufman has committed to Division II powerhouse Findlay (OH).
