SOUTH BEND, Ind. – Jordan Vedder has committed to continue his academic and basketball career for the Indiana University South Bend men's basketball program as announced by IU South Bend head coach Scott Cooper.
"Jordan is kind of a late bloomer who is just now starting to see how good he can be," said Cooper. "He is a big, strong, skilled forward who shoots the ball very well from the perimeter, and can finish in the paint. We also think he has the potential to be a very good defender and rebounder at our level as well as he continues to improve."
Vedder comes to South Bend from Geneva, Illinois where he prepped at Geneva High School under head coach Phil Ralston. Jordan helped the Vikings to a 22-7 overall record in his final season and earned All-Conference and Fox Valley All-Area recognition.
"Jordan played for a great high school program that has been loaded with good forwards the last few years, which should help him make the transition college basketball easier," continued Cooper. "Jordan is also a great kid from a great family. We always talk about getting good players, from good programs, who are good people, and Jordan checks all three boxes."
The 6'7" forward shot at a 57 percent clip from the field and 37 percent from long distance and made 47 three-pointers in his senior season.
Jordan joins Jackson Edwards and Alex Harmon in this year's recruiting class.
The Titans finished the 2015-16 season with an overall record of 19-14 and lost in the Chicagoland Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament championship game.
