2021 Jordan Nesbitt is a talented 6-6 wing from St. Louis that is continuing to add weapons to his offensive arsenal and is already ranked among the top recruits in the Midwest. Nesbitt is currently preparing to embark on a National schedule playing for St. Louis Christian Academy (SLCA) in St. Louis following a successful summer running with Bradley Beal Elite. 

Jordan currently holds six offers including Nebraska, Iowa, Louisiana-Monroe, Mississippi, Tulane, Kansas State and Louisville. He visited Nebraska in late September. Jordan was impressed with his visit to Nebraska and is sure to rack up more offers as more programs are able to get a look at him during the upcoming school season for which he has intensely prepared. 

In fall league play, Jordan showed a lot of progress in his ability to be a facilitator as well as carrying the scoring load. He also has improved his shot and was able to consistently knock down midrange and three-point field goals.  Nesbitt is a powerful guard with a quick first step and a high motor. He has a strong build and uses his size well to muscle through smaller opponents. 

SLCA Coach, Casey Autenrieth, sounded really enthused about the upcoming season for Jordan sharing, “He has really turned the corner this past month with leadership and accountability. Autenrieth noted that through off season work, Jordan has “improved his body and athleticism,” he adds that fans will see that “his shooting and play making has improved significantly.”

When asked about his preparation for the season, Jordan echoed the assessment of his coach, “I have really worked hard on my ball handling and getting my teammates involved.” According to Jordan, his improvement in these areas is crucial because his school team has added new bigs and a couple of shooters that can run and benefit from his abilities as a facilitator.  Jordan adds, “Getting and keeping them involved will be the key to our success as a team.”

“This year people can expect to see my leadership on the floor, hustle on both ends, and ability to keep my teammates engaged.” Jordan doesn’t have a timetable for his commitment but is looking for a program that has a strong basketball culture where he can continue to grow as a player, have a great relationship with the coaching staff, and further his playing career.  But for now, his focus is on racking up wins with his St. Louis Christian teammates
