From the get go at the NIKE Camp held in Palo Alto, Calif., on Saturday cornerback Josh Jordan (5-10, 170, 4.48) from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman was impressive doing drills. It was obviously transparent that Jordan was going to have a special day.
Jordan was smooth and really stood out. So much so that he ended up being defensive back MVP.
Jordan was very aggressive on Saturday and a very strong competitive nature. He was also very flexible an important ingredient for a corner and of course very good feet.
The amazing thing is Jordan came into the camp somewhat as a sleeper because he had to sit out his junior season due to transfer rules. He didn't allow rust to set in as he played on the JV level though he was one of the most talented juniors in the Silver State.
As a sophomore, Jordan was rated by Rivals.com as one of the nation's top 25 corners when he was a standout for Las Vegas (Nev.) Shadow Ridge.
Interesting enough, San Diego State remembered the talented Jordan from his outstanding sophomore season and is the first school to offer.
Arizona State, Cal, Oregon State and Purdue have been by the school this spring and are showing interest in the emerging cornerback from Vegas.
What is Jordan looking for in a college?
"I'm looking at schools where I think my style of play will fit in their defensive scheme," Jordan said. "Academics will also be an important consideration.
There could be a very good reason why, Jordan was so impressive on Saturday. He has good bloodlines. His father played college ball and his older Eric Jordan was one of the state's best running backs for the class of 2006. The older Jordan is now playing junior college ball.
