Report: St. John's Star G Rysheed Jordan Expected To Be Ruled Academically Ineligible

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.
