Michael Jordan's sons will be reunited on the basketball court for the first time since their days at Loyola Academy. Jordan's older son Jeff, a reserve player for the Illinois Fighting Illini and former walk-on, announced he's transferring to the University of Central Florida, where younger brother Marcus recently finished his freshman season.

The elder Jordan offspring has played sparingly with the Illini, averaging just over a point per game over three season. Meanwhile, playing in his first season for the UCF Knights, Marcus played in 32 games (18 starts) while averaging 8.0 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists. He was also named to the Conference USA All-Freshman team. While the Jordan bothers will be reunited on the court, it won't happen until the 2011-12 season. NCAA rules will require Jeff to sit out a year upon transfer before suiting up as a senior in 2011, when his brother will be playing his junior season.
