After having his coming out party at the NorCal NIKE Camp, Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman defensive back Josh Jordan has continued to see his stock rise in recent weeks. The talented corner picked up his 6th offer earlier today and third out of the Pac 10.
Jordan, 5-10, 170 pounds is one of the feel good stories of the year. After transferring to Gorman a year ago, he was forced to sit out his junior season and played on the junior varsity squad despite moving in to the area. With no varsity film to his credit, it's been amazing to see the scholarship offers roll in.
"We owe everything to the NIKE Camp," Jordan's father Eric said. "That camp really gave Josh a platform to show what he could do. San Diego State had offered him prior to the camp but after the camp, that's when things really picked up for him.
"Stanford offered him that same day and then UNLV, Wyoming and Oregon all offered as well. Today, Arizona State offered Josh and he was really excited about that one.
"Josh camped with ASU a couple of weeks ago and just loved it there. That was my first time there and I was very impressed as well. This past weekend, Josh was at Cal for their full contact camp and the coaches paid a lot of attention to him.
"Their DB coach, Coach Littlejohn liked him a lot but said they couldn't offer without seeing him play this season and we understand that. They want to check him out again after the first two or three games this season and then they'll decide on an offer.
"This weekend, Josh will camp with Nevada with the rest of the team. That's a team camp so Bishop Gorman will have their whole team and we'll see if they offer as well. After this one, that could be it. There is a chance Josh will camp at USC and UCLA later this month but it's not for sure.
"We haven't been invited or anything and neither school is showing that much interest in Josh but the fact is, it's USC and UCLA and for that reason, I think Josh wants to get out there and show what he could do. Right now, Josh likes all the schools that have offered and is not close to making a decision yet.
"He wants to take a few of his official visits first before committing anywhere. I don't think he'll do all five but I think he'll do at least two or three sometime during the season. That's the only way to make a decision, you have to see the schools and see how he fits in there. He'll likely be ready to make his commitment sometime in the middle or late in the season."
