Jordan McKoy Commits to Merrimack


The Merrimack men’s basketball program picked up a huge commitment over the weekend in versatile shooting guard Jordan McKoy out of Dwight-Englewood High School in New Jersey.

McKoy is a 6-foot-5 shooting guard who has also played small forward, but local newspaper reports mention that he has played all five positions on the floor in high school. Last season as a junior, he averaged 22.2 points per game with 6.3 rebounds and 1.6 assists.

McKoy will arrive at Merrimack at the same time that Juvaris Hayes, a terrific setup man at the point guard position, will be rising to his senior season.

This season, the reports that McKoy will be aiming to score his 2,000th career high school point. The website reported that his success in the classroom (3.63 GPA) had him also being recruited by Princeton, Columbia, Holy Cross, College of Charleston, Colgate and Farleigh Dickinson University — all Division I programs.

“A good community, a nurturing community, with nice people,” he said of what he was looking for in a school. “Nothing too big. I’ve been used to small schools my whole life, so 3,000, 4,000 kids. Really, it’s the people, a welcoming community with a vast selection of majors.”
