View Full Version : What do you know about 2012 Jordan Tebbutt out of Tualatin?

07-11-2009, 05:30 PM
I thought we'd talked about this 2012 young man previously, after his name came up on a Scout story about the Rose City Classic (http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=2&c=872381) mentioning Gonzaga, but I couldn't find a post, so maybe I got sidetracked. I know I was mightily impressed by the ink I found in the Oregon press. (Apologies if we did indeed post all this stuff before, but the search failed me.)

This is the quote from the Scout story back on June 15:
2012 Checklist:
Jordan Tebbutt The 6-foot-5 wing with a mans body is one of the worst kept secrets on the West Coast. The Tualatin, Ore.-based Tebbutt is reputed to be a conditioning rat and the tender age of 15, is literally a man among boys in the Elite 16s division. Hes an outrageous athlete and possesses solid 3-point range to boot. Tebbutt is definitely a player to keep an eye on, and is already hearing from UCLA, ASU, WSU, Stanford and Gonzaga.
Here's a pic of the young Mr. Tebbutt, from last fall's Clash of the Classes:


There's a bit more ink in Scout today for Tebbutt in a story about the West Coast All-Star Camp (http://scouthoops.scout.com/2/878528.html):
Jordan Tebbutt, 6-5 SF Tualatin (Ore.) Horizon Christian. Very skilled young forward with a strong body. Some question on whether he grows into a four, but hes skilled and plays with very good energy. Rivals Page (http://rivalshoops.rivals.com/viewprospect.asp?Sport=2&pr_key=89173) That page has him down at 6'3, but he's 6'5 now, per Scout.

The linked rivals premium story on his Rivals page from October 10, 2008, starts:
Scan down the roster of the team of high school players representing Oregon in Saturday's Clash of the Classes All-Star game and the names are familiar. One that may not be is that of Jordan Tebbutt, but you can be assured that will change in a hurry. The sculpted 6-foot-3, 180-pound wing enters his freshman year at Horizon Christian High School in Tualatin as perhaps the top player in his class in the state and we will undoubtedly be hearing plenty about him in the years to come.
Scout Profile Page (http://scouthoops.scout.com/a.z?s=75&p=8&c=1&nid=4154578): Scout's giving him one star right now, which is obviously nuts. They also have his high school incorrect. At least he attended Horizon Christian last fall, not Tualatin HS.

He was the Beaverton Times MVP (http://www.beavertonvalleytimes.com/sports/story.php?story_id=123809127417028000) of the West Valley League per the Beaverton times, as a freshman!

I've got a feeling we'll be hearing a lot more about this young man in the future. I hope we stay in his hot list of schools, because he looks like a dandy.

You know what this thread needs? Another highlight clip...


This kid seems like he's the REAL DEAL! In these clips he looks like he's 14 going on 24.

He is the real deal and the staff loves him. Not done growing, either.

I really enjoyed the first video I linked, from oregonlive.com. He is so articulate.

In my records, I have the West Coast All-Stars as his AAU team, but I haven't a clue where I got that info, or whether it's correct.

OregonLive, in my experience, has done a really nice job of covering HS sports in that state. A couple nice pieces on Kyle Wiltjer come to mind.

Here's two more youtube clip....



I see a lot of Xavier Henry in Jordan's game. Great size for a two guard, a nice lookin' jump shot, very athetlic, great poise and control going to the hoop. Like BZ alluded to, it's scary to think how good this kid is going to be if he keeps growing.

Of course, every school in the country will very likely be on this kid.

Is that a pic of Ira that you posted?

Tebbutt looks like an elite recruit. The local AAU folks have been drooling over him for a couple years. So long as he does not have academic issues, he will end up at one of those schools with multiple NCAA National Championship banners hanging from the rafters. But there is nothing wrong with GU aiming high.

Go Bulldogs! Get Bigger!

In the Rivals feature on him from last fall, Jordan said one of his goals was to maintain a 3.5 GPA all four years of high school. I don't know how his freshman year worked out grade-wise, but got to like a kid who attaches a high priority to grades.

Cheers to that. And that's one thing I like about Kelly. I think academic success among top recruits shows an overall winning attitude, which tends to be as important to a player's as anything else.

That kid is only a sophomore at Tualatin High? Man, he is muscular!

He goes to Horizon Chrisitian, which is a 3A (6A is largest) school in Tualatin. I'm not suggesting he transfer, but he will have limited competition at the 3A level as he continues to mature. Those are schools with 236-400 students. Horizon Christian only has about 100 kids, but has opted to play up in the 3A Division.

Is Horizon Christian HS a private school?

Yes, I believe it has only been open for a couple of years.
