IPFW’s Justin Jordan Tweets Mastodons Playing Career Over
Justin Jordan was a highly regarded recruit coming out of Fort Wayne’s North Side High School. After spending a season at Saint Louis University, Jordan returned to his hometown and enrolled at IPFW, but his Mastodons playing career appears to be short lived.
Jordan tweeted this week, “it’s official I can’t play anymore.”

After transferring from Saint Louis, Jordan sat out the start of the 2011-12 season due to transfer rules. He became eligible in December and averaged 22 minutes per game in the final 20 games. He averaged seven points per game for head coach Tony Jasick.
In June, Jordan tore his ACL and MCL playing a pickup game at the Fort Wayne YMCA, and did not return to action in the 2012-13 season.
Justin Jordan was the second leading scorer in the state of Indiana as a senior at North Side, where he averaged 27.7 points per game. He was recruited by Rick Majerus at Saint Louis, where he spent the 2009-10 season as a Billiken.
