Jordan McLaughlin emerges as one of best PGs on West coast
Jordan McLaughlin is a name that continues to gain buzz on the West coast, and after a very solid July period, his reputation has gone national.
LAS VEGAS – In terms of West coast point guards, Parker Jackson-Cartwright seemed to have a stranglehold on the No. 1 spot in the class of 2014. Lately, though, Jordan McLaughlin has been closing the gap.
McLaughlin, a 6-foot lead guard from Etiwanda (Calif.), has played extremely well on the AAU circuit with Prodigy Elite. He has very good length and athleticism, and he is really solid in transition. McLaughlin gets to the rim for finishes, and knows how to change speeds.
“I’m playing better, playing my game,” he said, “My hard work is starting to pay off. I’m doing well.”
He has taken trips to USC and UCLA, and plans to trek to Arizona in November or December.
“[I’m looking for] style of play and how the coaching staff treats the players,” McLaughlin said.
