Jordan Hughes Signs With Western Illinois

Class of 2015 Conant standout Jordan Hughes of All In Y&R has signed to play his college basketball for head coach Billy Wright and Western Illinois University.

Hughes, a 6'10 center, helped his recruiting stock greatly this spring with his play on the travel team circuit with All In Y&R to earn his Division I scholarship.

Hughes is continuing to make great strides with his game and seemingly got better every time he hit the floor this spring. His best basketball is in front of him and he could ultimately pay off big for WIU.

Hughes was offered and signed while on a visit to the school.

Hughes joins a 2015 WIU class that also includes DeAngelo Bruster, James Claar and Brandon Gilbeck.
