One scholarship is in for Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek 2013 wide receiver Jorian Jordan. The 6-foot-1, 175-pounder believes he's on the verge of more in the near future with a variety of other interest.
"I have an offer by Towson," he said. "They offered me in practice over the summer. The coaches saw the way I was running routes.
"I'm just happy and I'm going to keep working and hopefully I get more."

Plenty of other schools are interested, but know little about Jordan so far.
"Over the summer I went to a lotof camps, at least six, they all gave me good views, especially North Carolina with Coach Williams. He said he liked me a lot," he said. "Duke called the school a couple weeks ago. I also went to South Carolina, NC State and Wake Forest.
"South Carolina said that they would have made a verbal offer, but I had no film since I didn't play my sophomore year."
Does Jordan like anybody?
'I'm a big fan of North Carolina and South Carolina," he said. "Mostly, South Carolina is because they really focus their receivers to be ready to play in the NFL. They bulk up their receivers.
"I like Coach Williams at North Carolina. I like his coaching style and he was very different from the other coaches at camps I went to."
A strong 3.2 GPA student, academics are just one of the factors Jordan is looking for in his future home.
"I'm just looking for a school that provides great academics and can just help me get better," he said. "I haven't really decided yet what I want to study, but location isn't a big deal.
"I like Virginia and North Carolina. I actually moved down here from Virginia Beach only about three or four years ago."
As far as his ability, this season is Jordan's first to start.
"I didn't really play much last year," he said. "I'm doing pretty fine this year. I had a good a couple weeks ago against Sun Valley with four catches for 50-yards and a touchdown. The first week we mostly ran a lot and I contributed as a blocker."
Not just a football player, Jordan has placed in the regionals in track as well.
