One of the better prospects in the state is Chandler High School's Dion Jordan. Jordan has a multitude of offers including both in state schools. To say things are going well for the in state athlete would be an understatement but Dion is taking things in stride and waiting things out.
"Things are going real good right now," Jordan said. "I am just not too worried about it all right now. The process is long and I plan on just taking things as they come. I am not going to rush anything because I want to enjoy the whole process and just go through it with open eyes and have fun. Right now I am just chilling out and taking things in."
Since he plans on taking things slowly and plans to soak it all in he has not narrowed things down to even a top 8 yet. But when pressed to list 8 schools that he wanted on his Scout.com profile he did come up with a few schools.
"Oh man I don't really know, I mean I like a lot of schools," he said. "If I have to list some I would say that U of A and ASU are in there. Probably Colorado and Oregon State and Oregon and Boise State. I would probably put Utah in there right now and probably UCLA (no offer) too. Oh and Michigan just offered me so I have to put them in there that is a big time offer that I really appreciate so they would have to be in there. I think that is nine schools but I said I can't really narrow things down right now."
Being from the Valley area of the state Jordan is being recruited by Arizona Associate Head Coach and Linebackers Coach Tim Kish and the two have been able to develop a good bond so far according to the athlete.
"I like Coach Kish a lot," he said. "He is a real cool guy. He is real down to earth and we get along great. I text him and we talk once in a while when I can call him. All of the coaches at U of A are like that. I think they are all real down to earth and honest guys. I like all of their new offensive coaches too, they are all good guys."
One great thing that recruiters see in Jordan is his flexibility on the field. He projects at a number of positions at the next level and he is being recruited to play various positions by his many suitors.
"I prefer to play straight receiver," he said. "I mean I will honestly play anywhere the coaches want me to play because I want to play football and will to what it takes to win and to get on the field. Some schools are recruiting me as a tight end and some say I could play defensive end if I fill out but most say they want me for receiver. U of A says that I could play receiver."
Jordan has been to Tucson and says that he likes what he sees down in the Old Pueblo. He also went on to say that he likes the future that Arizona Football holds and he likes where the school is in proximity to home.
"I like the facilities and everything down there," he said. "The weight room is very nice and I like the campus and everything. I really like the fact that it is close to home but it is still kind of away from home at the same time. I think U of A, with the way they played last year, will be competing for the Pac-10 title no doubt. They are getting that new offense and they look like they are going to really breakout soon and compete on the highest level."
Jordan says that he has a high interest in majoring in Graphic Design in college as he might want to some day design album covers. He has not posted an ACT or SAT score yet but is slated to take the SAT this Saturday (May 5th). Jordan will be with his teammates at the U of A passing league tournament this summer and might attend the one day elite camp as well.
