Jordan McCabe, the basketball-handling phenom from Beaver Lake Middle School, was drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters on Tuesday, according to his family and a press release from the team.

He was among six players selected as part of the team’s 2011 draft class. Other players included 2011 College Slam Dunk Champion Jacob Tucker, and 2011 College 3-point Champion Andrew Goudelock, the press release said.

Jordan’s selection was unique because the Globetrotters exercised its special “future discovery clause.” That means the team obtains the rights to sign McCabe once he graduates from college.

Jordan’s father, Matt McCabe, said he wasn’t sure to what to think of the news, but that it follows a busy past few months for the rising star. Jordan appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” performed at the NBA All-Star Weekend and has wowed crowds across the country at college basketball halftime shows.

    This kid is amazing, I have no doubt he has a bright future with the Globetrotters if he chooses that route. And their dribblers make big money.

    I see sliding across the floor dribbling as the Washington Generals chase him for the ball, and running from angry Centers with buckets of confetti in his future.

Got something to say?
