St. John's star guard Rysheed Jordan, the Red Storm's leading returning scorer, is expected to be ruled ineligible for the fall semester of the 2015-16 season, according to a report by the New York Daily News.
Jordan, a rising junior, averaged 14.3 points and 3.1 assists for St. John's in 2014-15. He is the program's best returning player.
The report states that it's possible Jordan might not play for St. John's again.

From the report:
A source close to the St. John’s program said a departure is not a done deal. Jordan has been told what he must do in school during the summer session and fall semester in order to be able to play from mid-December through March. He is expected to meet with new coach Chris Mullin in the coming week, and a decision could be made then on whether he will continue at St. John’s.
However, a source close to Jordan said that he already has told those close to him in Philadelphia that his time with the Johnnies is through.
Losing Jordan would be a big blow for Chris Mullin in his first year with the St. John's program, as the Red Storm already have to attempt to replace their leading scorer in 2014-15, D'Angelo Harrison.
