Oklahoma Star looking for offers

Jordan Kennedy stands 5-11 and weighs 170 pounds. Not a huge player but he plays with a big heart and delivers a hard hit on the football field. What Jordan lacks in size he makes up for with blazing speed and his toughness. Kennedy, who runs the high hurdles for Glenpool's track team, has been clocked as fast as 4.38 in the forty-yard dash.

During the 2006 season Kennedy performed well on both sides of the ball for Glenpool. As a wide receiver he led his team in receiving and had 35 catches for almost 700 yards. On defense he had 126 tackles and 4 interceptions. He also registered a crucial blocked punt for his team.

After the season Kennedy was recognized for his efforts by being named to the Oklahoma 4A First Team All-State team. Kennedy was also named the Player of the Year in his district.

Kennedy is solid in the classroom where he sports a B plus average. He is fully qualified.

You'd think with Kennedy's credentials that recruiters would be breaking down the doors to talk to him. Think again. Kennedy is getting very little interest from Division I schools. "The only schools he is hearing from is Tulsa, a little bit; Pittsburg State and Northeastern State," said his father, Alex.

The elder Kennedy echoed the frustration of many parents of star players from small schools, "We play in a small class here in Oklahoma and that's just the way it is around here. The big schools, Jenks, Union and Broken Arrow get all the publicity around here," Kennedy continued, "It's really a shame that there hasn't been more schools looking at him."

Kennedy sent out video of his son after his junior season and Jordon got early interest from Army, TCU and Wyoming but things never materialized. "After the Oklahoma City-Spencer game TCU had one of their guys come down and look at him. He talked real positive to him after the game and then we never heard from them again," said Kennedy.
