PALO ALTO, Calif. – There have been some tremendous players to come through the Las Vegas Bishop Gorman program over the past five years. But what really separates the program from others in Nevada is that not only does it produce the blue-chippers, it also has some amazing players that sometimes go a little under the radar screen but end up being great college players.
One player that is in that category – but maybe not for long – is cornerback Josh Jordan.
The 5-foot-9, 165-pounder was named most valuable player for the defensive backs at Saturday's NIKE Training Camp at Stanford University. He had a very good day in drills and was really good in the one-on-ones when he locked down several receivers and came up with some big plays.
Coming into the camp, he wasn't considered to be one of the top prospects in Nevada, but that might have changed after Saturday as quite a few college coaches bumped into him after the camp to tell him he did a great job.
"I just came in to compete and compete with the best players out here," Jordan said with a big smile on his face. "I just wanted to come out here and stay with everybody."
Jordan more than stayed with everybody he dominated.
"What I was doing well was listening," he said. "I had great coaches out here, and they were giving me some great advice. It was just a great learning experience. I learned what different receivers do to you and how you have to watch them and go out there and react."
Jordan only has one offer on the table, but that might change after Saturday.
"I only have one offer from San Diego State," Jordan said. "I think that's going to change now. At least I hope it does. I want to hear more from Cal, UCLA, Arizona State and Purdue."
Jordan wasn't the only Bishop Gorman player to standout Saturday. His teammates, running back Keola Antolin, and stud junior-to-be, defensive lineman Justin Chaisson, were among the best in the camp.
"It was a great day for Bishop Gorman," he said. "We had a lot of really good players out here. I know I had a big day, and I know Keola did also. I wanted to go up against him in the one-on-ones, but he was going against the linebackers. It would be pretty even. He's a quick guy. Justin Chaison is a monster. We did a great job of representing our school.
