Champaign, Ill. - University of Illinois head coach Bruce Weber announced today that junior Jeff Jordan is returning to the Fighting Illini basketball team.

"Jeff recently indicated his interest in coming back to the team," Weber said. "After meeting with him and discussing the situation, we are pleased to give him this opportunity. He has obviously missed a great deal of time away from the program the last six months, and he has a lot of work ahead of him. There are conditions Jeff must meet to fully earn his way back. At this time, his focus needs to be on his academic work and catching up to his teammates in practice. Jeff is a determined young man, and he has expressed to us that he is willing to make the total commitment necessary for a successful return."
