Six-foot guard Pierre Jordan announced on Monday evening that he will transfer to Georgia Tech to finish his college basketball career. Jordan, who earned his undergraduate degree on Saturday from Florida State, has two years of eligibility remaining, and will seek his Master’s degree as a Yellow Jacket.

Pierre Jordan never earned much playing time on an Florida State squad that had several older guards that dominated playing time. In his three seasons with the Seminoles, Jordan averaged just 5.2 minutes per game on the court, scoring 37 total points in those three seasons.

But Georgia Tech will get a little more depth amongst the guards, and they will get a player in Jordan who can distribute the ball to other shooters on the floor.

He originally came to Florida State when Chris Singleton, his teammate at Dunwoody High School (where they won two state titles), committed to play for the Seminoles. Jordan committed shortly after, and the pair would help FSU make the NCAA Tournament in all three seasons with the team. Singleton moved on to the NBA Draft at the end of the 2010-11 season, and Jordan is looking for a change as well after graduating.

He is eligible to play immediately, which will be a boost to the squad in Brian Gregory’s first season as head coach of the Yellow Jackets.

Jordan played AAU ball for the Atlanta Celtics, and founder Karl McCray had a chance to watch the guard progress as he grew up.

“He’s a great kid and he always has been,” McCray said. “He’s always been a student of the game, and he’s always played very smart. He has a high basketball IQ.”

He may not be an explosive point-scorer, but Jordan should bring valuable experience and much needed depth to the basketball court for the Yellow Jackets.
