Report: Rysheed Jordan ruled academically ineligible

Startling news coming out of Queens as the Red Storm point guard is expected to be ruled ineligible for the 2015-16 season.

The New York Daily News has unearthed some startling news regarding the St. John's Red Storm point guard.

Rysheed Jordan, per a report from Roger Rubin, is expected to be ruled academically ineligible for the upcoming 2015-16 fall semester and consequently might be done at the university.

Jordan, who averaged 14.1 points, 3.1 assists and 3.7 rebounds in the 2014-15 season, has reportedly been informed of his necessary duties should he desire a return to the university in Jamaica, Queens, New York:

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, per that very same report from Rubin, Jordan may have already made his mind up according to a source:

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.

This is, obviously, a rather disappointing turn of events for all parties involved. If Jordan does decide to end his time with the program, we can expect him to set his sights toward the National Basketball Association. DraftExpress lists the 6-foot-4, 193-pound point guard as the No. 36 sophomore in the country, but Jordan is not listed in their Top 100 prospects list.
