After a stellar showing at the Miami NIKE Combine on Super Bowl Sunday, Hollywood (Fla.) Chaminade-Madonna linebacker Jordan Futch has seen his stock rise. Multiple programs have stepped forward with scholarship offers and more are on the way.
"I've had a couple of schools offer," he said. "Auburn just offered me. South Carolina, West Virginia, Virginia, Georgia and Wisconsin have offered. N.C. State, Boston College, Colorado and Miami (Fla.) all should be on the way."
At the NIKE Combine, the 6-foot-3, 202-pounder put up some impressive numbers, clocking a 4.58-second 40-yard dash, a 4.16 in the shuttle, a 34-inch vertical leap and 13 reps on the bench press.
With plenty of early attention, Futch has yet to narrow his list. He does, however, have five programs that are at the top for the moment.
"Right now, I'm really open," he said. "If I had to make a top five, it would be Miami, West Virginia, Georgia, Florida State and Auburn."
Futch added that he could make an early decision, but isn't close to one at the present time.
"As far as making a decision, it's open," he said. "I want to keep all of my opportunities open and find the coaching staff that's the best fit for me personally. Some things that are important to me are things like a family environment. I want to be in a Family-oriented group that watches out for each other like we do here at Chaminade-Madonna. I also want to play for a great coaching staff in a family-oriented program.
"I probably will commit early, just want to keep it open right now."
The decision likely won't come before the summer. Futch has a full schedule on the summer camp circuit.
"I am planning going to Miami's summer camp," he said. "I also want to camp at Florida State, Florida, Georgia and probably will go up to Wisconsin and West Virginia and Auburn. I should be doing a lot of traveling. My coaches are going to go with me to some."
This week, Futch will take a field trip to the University of Miami with some of his classmates. He hopes to learn more about the campus while he is there.
Futch tallied 82 tackles during his junior year.
"I've been training ever since football season is over," he said. "I've been training and doing a speed camp getting my speed and agility faster."
Futch wants to major in business.
