You won't see many players at the high school level more physically impressive than Chandler (Ariz.) defensive lineman Cameron Jordan. The standout lineman has a college body right now and said he has lined up his first two official visits.
Jordan, 6-3, 250 pounds first caught our eye this past Spring at the NIKE Camp at USC back in April. He tested well running a 5.14-40, jumped 26 inches in the vertical and did 25 reps on the bench. He then dominated the position drills looking like a man among boys that day.
Soon the offers rolled in and Jordan said he has a short list of schools he's considering right now.

"I have about five schools on my list," Jordan said. "Oregon State is my favorite mainly because they were the first one to offer and that always stuck with me. They took a chance on me by offering so early and that means a lot. Plus I like how they're playing, that was a huge win over USC last weekend.
"I'm going to take an official visit to Oregon State (Nov. 24) for the Civil War game with Oregon. The only other visit I have set is to Cal for (Dec. 8). I'm going to visit Colorado as well but I don't have a date set with them right now.
"I also like the two in-state schools, Arizona and Arizona State but I'm still debating whether I should take an official trip there or just drive up for a day and make it an unofficial. I've already been to an ASU game and I'm going to watch Arizona play Cal in two weeks.
"Between the two in-state schools, I would say I like Arizona better because the location. It's a little farther away and I like that. I would feel like I'm getting away from home and getting my independence but at the same time, I would still be close enough to drive home if I needed to.
"As for making a commitment, I really don't have a plan or anything right now. I'm totally open and flexible to anything. If I take a visit and it just feels right, I'll go ahead and commit. If not, I'll keep taking more trips until I find a place that feels just right for me."
Chandler is 9-0 on the year and Jordan said he has 12 sacks on the season.
"My goal was two a game so I'm falling a little short," Jordan said. "That's OK though because we're winning so I'm happy with everything. They're moving me around a lot, from end to tackle, to take advantage of matchups. I prefer end because I see less double teams but I'll do whatever they want me to do."
