Top-25 recruit Tylis Jordan commits to Chris Beard and the Rebels

OXFORD, Miss. – It’s a happy Friday for Rebel fans across the country as 2025 forward Tylis Jordan, the 24th-ranked player in the country (On3), has committed to Ole Miss over Auburn, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia Tech, and LSU.

Standing at 6-foot-9 and weighing 210 pounds, there’s no question why Jordan is ranked so highly in his class. In his junior season, the Georgia native averaged 21.3 points, 10.3 rebounds, 1.4 blocks, and 1.1 steals, according to On3.

Scouting Report on Jordan

Looking at the film, his overall versatility is the first thing to notice. His speed, height, and length enable him to be an elite finisher at the rim while also being capable of shooting from the permitter. He does a fantastic job creating space and moving without the ball to develop himself opportunities.

Defensively, you’ll notice that Jordan plays with a high amount of energy, which allows him to be a dominant rebounder, something that will be highly valued at Ole Miss.

Jordan is a skilled forward who possesses a lot of guard like skills and has made steps in his physicality in recent years. After jumping up from 180 to 210 lbs, Jordan possesses suitable size for a forward at 6-foot-9.

A riser in the class of 2025, Jordan was highly productive in both the high school and Adidas 3SSB circuit this past offseason.

Offensively, Jordan mostly operates from the mid-post and beyond. Despite true size, Jordan plays as a 3/4 tweener who can shoot over smaller defenders or can use solid footwork to get past bigger defenders. He also is comfortable with back-to-the-basket moves from the high post (elbows) and can knock down turn around jumpers with ease. Jordan also can extend out and knock down perimeter jumpers in spot up opportunities as well as dribble pull ups in transition.

A major threat is the opportunity for Jordan to accelerate out in transition leading to easy scoring chances on turnovers. The most underrated offensive portion of his game is as a passer. His acumen as a passer may be slept on, but he is more than capable of hitting open cuts and post feeds. This could easily be seen in potential high low opportunities. While still growing into is frame, Jordan is adequate at crashing the glass on the offensive end for rebounds.

On the defensive side, the improved frame has made him a bigger impact defender. With his athleticism he can step out and guard perimeter forwards, and is an improving rim protector. He can comfortably guard 4/5 and can spot fill guarding wings in a pinch. With his movement ability he can excel in different zone look defenses with his length.

With the commitments of Patton Pinkins and Tylis Jordan, Chris Beard is quietly building one of the most talented 2025 classes in the country.
