Jordan Usher (Marietta, Ga.) Wheeler HS / Atlanta Celtics
Grad Year / Position: 2017 – Wing
Committed College: Southern California
Date: June 18, 2016
Evaluator: Brandon Clay
Location: NBPA Top 100 Evals (Charlottesville, VA)
Usher finished well in transtition during the camp. He’s a guy I’ve seen make his mark as an outside shooter so adding more versaility off the bounce or in the open floor would only enhance his game. Usher has the length and size to productive at either wing spot in college.

Usher has all the physical tools you would like to see in a wing prospect at the next level. He has length and lift to finish above the rim. He does a good job of getting into the passing lanes on the defensive end and is particularly good at finishing in transition. Offensively his jumper is on point. He can hit the long range jumper while also having the footwork to get his shot off in the midrange. Increasing his lateral explosiveness will be the area that Jordan will want to focus on as he prepares for his senior year.
I challenged ’17 Jordan Usher to keep growing his game. He accepted.
