Jonathan Ferrey/Getty ImagesJeff Jordan walked on at Illinois, then received a scholarship. He appeared in 59 games for the Illini.
The second-year player who walked on with the Illini said Wednesday he plans to focus on his studies.
"I loved playing for the Fighting Illini and appreciate the support I was given by my teammates, coaches and the great fans here," Jordan in a statement. "But I have come to the point where I'm ready to focus on life after basketball."
I want to feel sorry for him because he must feel pressure to live up to the ridiculously high standard set by his father. But then again, he is filthy rich and can do just about anything he wants and is set for life.
