A dynamic big-man from Mt. Bethel, Jordan Meka is entering his junior season with three high-major D1 offers, and ready to dominate.
The 6-foot-8 power forward has been known to be a force in the paint, but like so many others these days, it’s his perimeter game that he’s working to incorporate.
“I would say my inside game is definitely my strength. I’ve been working a lot on my outside game as well, my 3-point and my mid-range. I just need to get more comfortable with those aspects of my game,” said Meka, Georgia’s 15th-ranked 2020.
Throughout his offseason, Meka played with both Georgia Stars 16U and 17U on the EYBL. He says the opportunity was like none he’s ever experienced.
“It was an amazing experience. And the competition is just so tough,” said Meka. “I enjoyed all the guys I played with and I was surrounded by good players.”
As a sophomore with Mt. Bethel, Meka started and was the leading scorer while putting in 19 points per game. Things will be a little different for him this season.
“Now that I’m a junior, I’ll have a leadership role,” said Meka. “It’s definitely going to be a challenge for me because I’m not used to speaking up a lot. I’m going to work on it.”
Meka reports Georgia, Georgia Tech and Mississippi State as his current offers. He’s seeing plenty of other interest come in, too.
It’ll be a big year ahead for the sought-after big-man.
“I have a lot of interest right now. I’ve been talking to a lot of coaches; Ohio State, Tennessee State, UCLA and a lot more,” said Meka, who also mentioned Alabama and Florida are interested.
“I still have some time, and I’ll just be patient. Patience is the key to this. I want to make sure I’m comfortable and I’m comfortable with my decision.”
