Former SDA Star Jordan Blount makes a big impact in the Irish Senior Men’s Euro Qualifier Campaign
SDA star Jordan Blount had an excellent Irish Men’s 2022 campaign as starting small forward. Jordan was a consistent leader in both points and steals while helping the national team to a successful small nations tournament win and a positive Euro qualifier campaign.
Jordan attended the SDA Elite Invitational Camp in 2015 to compete against the best in Ireland and to support his dream to continue his development in the USA. Jordan was a standout athlete at the SDA Elite Invitational Camp where he won Camp Co-MVP and the 1v1 Contest. He showed huge potential throughout that camp and impressed a number of American college coaches with his athleticism, toughness and defensive abilities. Jordan’s SDA Camp highlights and SDA Player Profile put his talents in the shop window and served as the starting point for many interested American prep school and college coaches.
Following SDA Jordan ultimately committed to the University of Illinois-Chicago on full scholarship. The University of Illinois-Chicago competes in the Horizon Conference, Division 1 (NCAA). Jordan had a great career with the UIC Flames where his all-round game made a positive impact on both the offensive and defensive ends of the floor where he averaged 6.3 ppg and 4 rpg as a senior.
After graduating from college Jordan continues to excel in both his professional basketball career (Spain, Iceland) and International basketball career (starting small forward for the Irish Senior Men’s team).
“SDA provides the most elite basketball camp in Ireland for both skill development and recruitment to college in America. SDA really helped me in my student-athlete career and I would recommend it for any up and coming Irish student-athlete.” – Jordan Blount (Irish International)
SDA is very proud of Jordan and what he has achieved to date, and we wish him continued success into the future!
