Now that the two senior wide receivers at Charlotte (N.C.) Mallard Creek, Jamel Harbison and Corey Miller, have played their last game in high school, junior Jorian Jordan will have his chance to showcase his abilities.
"I want to get more active in special teams, particularly in the return game," Jordan said. "I'm working on getting faster and getting a stronger core."
The 6-foot-1, 175-pound Jordan has the added benefit of playing, practicing and competing with some very talented players.

"The competition in our receiving corps with Jamel Harbison, Corey Miller, Marquez North and myself really helped us get better as a group," explained Jordan. "I'm very proud of my route running. I worked really hard on that and I feel like it rubbed off on some of my teammates."
Jordan, who holds an offer from Towson, pointed out he is also drawing interest from many other schools.
"I've been hearing from Maryland, Oregon, Notre Dame, Marshall, Wake Forest, Duke, North Carolina State and South Carolina," he said. "Getting an offer from Notre Dame would really be great. I love the history up there and all their games are on TV. If I have a chance to get on the field and show off, everyone is going to see."
When asked about his favorites, Jordan was not bashful.
"Duke and South Carolina are my favorites," said Jordan. "I've been to Duke and have an uncle that went there and I really like their academics. If football doesn't work out I'd have something to fall back on. I visited South Carolina and I really liked their weight room. They've got a great training program and I could see how it translated to the field especially when I looked at Alshon Jeffery."
Aside from these two visits, three other programs have also already hosted Jordan.
"I've also been to North Carolina, Wake Forest and NC State," said Jordan. "Those schools were nice, but I was only there for camps and didn't get a chance to look around. I've been getting a lot of invites but my dad, uncles and I haven't been able to plan any real visits yet. I would like to visit Tennessee and see some of the new facilities they are building."
To go along with his on the field abilities, Jordan says he currently has a 3.0 GPA.
