At the recent EA SPORTS Elite 11 workout in Las Vegas (Nev.) this past weekend, we bumped in to Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman defensive back Josh Jordan who was hanging out watching his quarterback work out at the camp. Jordan talked about his recruitment and there is one school with a clear lead right now.
Jordan, 5-10, 170 pounds has really blown up this Spring after earning DB MVP honors at the NIKE Camp at Stanford. After playing on the junior varsity squad due to a transfer a year ago, Jordan showed a great combination of speed, cover skills and was one of the most aggressive corners we've seen anywhere this year.
San Diego State had offered prior to the camp and Stanford offered immediately following the event. UNLV, Wyoming, Arizona State, Oregon and Nevada have since offered with the Wolfpack being the most recent one after Jordan earned MVP at their camp a week ago.
After talking with Jordan, it sounds like an early commitment could be a strong possibility.
"I really like ASU a lot right now," Jordan said. "I had a great time at their camp and I know that would be a great fit for me.
"People have said you shouldn't make an early commitment to a school unless you feel 100% that the school is the best for you and that's basically how I feel about ASU. I can't imagine finding a better fit anywhere.
"I like Coach Erickson a lot and his style of coaching. His teams are always tough, aggressive and physical and that's my style too. Coach Simmons is a great DB coach and I have a good relationship with him as well.
"I haven't made up my mind yet and there is still a chance I could take some official visits but ASU is where my heart is right now. I'm just going to see how the summer goes and then I'll decide what to do before the season gets going."
