Milo Jordan said at the Rivals.com California Five-Star Academy in April at his high school that he was focused on improving his grades and that offers should start coming in soon.
The Corona (Calif.) Centennial defensive tackle saw things pick up around a month later and after Arizona State offered him the 6-foot-2, 275-pound prospect decided to end his recruitment with a commitment to the Sun Devils.
"I'm very excited," Jordan said. "That's the conference I wanted to be in and Arizona State is one of my favorite schools. I don't have to worry about it anymore so that's a big burden now gone for me."
Colorado and San Jose State also offered Jordan, a fierce competitor who plays with a lot of toughness and aggression, but Arizona State's coaching staff stood out most and that's one big reason why he chose to commit.
The Sun Devils' staff was much more personal, Jordan said, and he felt most comfortable with them during the recruiting process. It was a big deal for the Corona Centennial standout during his decision-making process.
"I loved how they recruited me," said Jordan, who picked up the Arizona State offer about three weeks ago.
"I love how the coaches came out, how they talked to me. I liked how they are and how they act. It took me back. It wasn't just the traditional way of recruiting. It was way more personal. I liked that. They win games and they're going to win games and I want to win games."
Jordan, who finished with 67 tackles and 2.5 sacks in his junior season, said he plans to visit Arizona State's campus sometime this week.
