The Pulaski (Tenn.) Giles County junior has added several SEC offers of late, and he spent his Saturday at Alabama for the Crimson Tide's big junior day.
The seemingly inevitable happened when he was able to spend some time with the head coach.
"Coach [Nick] Saban called me in and broke the news to me," Ordway said of the offer. "He said that I need to gain more pounds and that they offered regardless.
"It means a lot to me, makes the recruiting rocket up more now."
The 6-foot-1, 170-pounder liked plenty about his time in Tuscaloosa on this day, but kept getting back to Saban's staff.
"The coaching staff is great, I'm liking the facilities and the environment," he said. "(Kevin) Steele was who I spoke to a lot. I like Alabama.
"All-Around...great staff, fan base, the entire team."
Outside of the obvious, the best part of the day for Ordway was when the event shifted to Bryant-Denney Stadium.
"Walking through the tunnel onto the field," he said.
With several other offers now in hand, including a half-dozen in the SEC and from both in-state schools Tennessee and Vanderbilt, the future four-star cornerback is taking things slowly. He has no timetable for a decision.
"I'm completely open right now," Ordway said. "No top schools or anything! I'm liking all my schools right now."
