Plans for the Fall and Going Forward...
"This Fall I'm still doing three days a week in the weight room, and doing 3-4 days a week on the court with Omar and Rick. Just getting ready for the season. I'm going to keep coming here. Getting better. Getting bigger. Trying to be the best. And the better I get, the better players I get to play with and against. It was awesome training with guys who play D1 or play professionally."
On What Nexxt Level Has Meant to Him...
"It is kinda like a second family. My mom trains with Salim and Salim kinda took me under his wing and developed my schedule here this summer. Got me work to do here, in the cafe, kept me busy. I'm definitely grateful for everything Nexxt Level has given to me in general. If I didn't go to Nexxt Level I don't know where I'd be right now. It's so great to be a Nexxt Level Athlete and I want to give back to them as much as they have given to me."

Quotes from Jordan:
On Training this Summer...
"I would wake up at 9:30am. Take my bike to the train, ride the train to here (NL). 10:30am workout in the weight room. Some days I did yoga at 9:30am. 12 o'clock I had basketball group training with Marcus. After that I would work in the Cafe and and eat lunch. Some days I would have Nexxt Level duties that Salim and Luke gave me and after that I would have one-on-one training with Omar. And Thursdays I had Special Olympics at night. So some days I was here from 9:30a-9:30p. I definitely got stronger this summer. Past summers I solely had a basketball focus, did camps and different things, but this summer it was a whole new experience (training in the weight room almost every day). So much better than before. I definitely can tell the difference on the court. Omar talks about unlocking the true potential. I'm so excited to unload all this training into games."
On His Goals...
"When I first started high school I didn't expect anything big. Just play high school and be done. But once I started to take it more seriously and started coming here more my whole perspective has changed. I have gotten so much better and have trained so much and I see the talent in the area...I'm excited to see where I'll stack up. I've gone from thinking maybe low end D3 (college) to now I'm going to try as hard as I can and work my butt off every day here and try to get to that D1 level and actually play and contribute."
