After a couple weeks of speculation, guard Rysheed Jordan will be returning to St. John's for his junior season. The following tweet was posted to Jordan's account on Tuesday evening.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-partner="tweetdeck"><p>NYC RYSHEED JORDAN WILL BE BACK FOR NEXT SEASON .....</p>&mdash; blackjesus (@____whynot) <a href="https://twitter.com/____whynot/status/588126847981981697">April 14, 2015</a></blockquote>

When Chris Mullin was hired, his first order of business was convincing Jordan and Chris Obekpa to stick around. Obekpa announced last week he'd be returning for his senior season.

Jordan played a big role for the Red Storm last season, averaging 14.1 points per game
