Jayshawn Jordan was offered by Wyoming on Tuesday and the Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea cornerback said he's looking forward to his visit in January to see if he wants to commit.
Jordan, a three-star cornerback who shined at the Seattle NIKE Camp last spring, said he was a little surprised by the offer but that he's excited because Wyoming could be the place for him.
"I was talking to them a little bit but I didn't know they were going to offer me so soon," Jordan said.

"It's pretty big. I still plan to visit down there the weekend of January 21 so I'm going to wait to go on a visit down there before I make any commitment."
Eastern Washington has also offered and Jordan, a 5-foot-10, 170-pound prospect, said Washington State, Idaho and Montana are showing interest. Rivals.com rates him No. 15 in the Washington state rankings.
One big reason why Wyoming might be the best fit for Jordan is because close friend Trent Sewell just committed to the Cowboys.
Sewell is a three-star wide receiver from Bothell, Wash., who also lists offers from UCLA and Washington and has known Jordan for a while. That friendship could play a big role in Jordan's decision-making process.
"Me and Trent are good friends," Jordan said.
"He used to go to O'Dea so we're friends. That is a big influence. This way I would know at Wyoming I would have friends down there so that would be important."
Jordan helped Seattle O'Dea to a 13-1 record this season. Its only loss came to undefeated Bellevue in the state playoffs.
