Jordan McCabe, a basketball-handling phenomenon from Beaver Lake Middle School, was drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters on June 21, 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, according to the press release.

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.
