ATLANTA – Pierre Jordan, a member of the men’s basketball program at Florida State for three years who graduated with his bachelor’s degree in the summer term, has enrolled in graduate school at Georgia Tech and will be a member of the Yellow Jackets’ team in 2011-12.
A point guard from Dunwoody, Ga., who attended Dunwoody High School, Jordan was a three-year varsity letterwinner and a member of three NCAA Tournament teams at Florida State, helping the Seminoles advanced to the Sweet 16 of the 2011 NCAA Tournament and the championship game of the ACC Tournament for the first time in school history in 2009.
“We’re extremely excited to have Pierre join our Yellow Jacket family,” said Tech coach Brian Gregory. “His experience and maturity, and the fact that he has won at every level, should positively impact our program. We’re fortunate to have a student-athlete of Pierre’s caliber and character join our team at this time.”
Jordan is enrolled in Building Construction and Facility Management at Tech after completing course work for his undergraduate degree from FSU in Interdisciplinary Social Studies. The 6-0 guard played in 39 games at FSU, including 12 ACC games and one NCAA Tournament game. Though he played in games in all three seasons at FSU, was granted a medical red-shirt following the 2008-09 season, in which he played the first six games and sat out the remainder of the year due to a knee injury. He averaged 5.2 minutes a game over his career.
In his four years at Dunwoody High School, the Wildcats won two AAA state titles, made the final four once and finished as the runner-up once.
