6-2, 210 pound two-way standout Chris Jordan hasn't been able to visit many of his top schools this summer. In a recent interview, CUTigers.com caught up with Jordan to find out the latest.

"I haven't been on any visits and don't have any planned," he said. "It is kind of hard for me to visit right now. I don't really have any transportation right now."

When asked about his current favorites, Jordan responded, "I really don't know. I talk to Alabama and Clemson a lot. I also talk to Georgia Tech a lot, but I don't really have any favorites."

The upcoming season will have a big impact on Jordan's decision.

"I want to make my decision after my season. I want to look at the teams and see how they do this fall," said Jordan.

Which teams are recruiting the prize recruit the hardest right now?

"Alabama and Clemson are," replied the star athlete.

Clemson tight ends coach/recruiting coordinator Billy Napier is working hard to convince the Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) standout to look closely at coming to Tigertown.

"Coach Napier tells me they want me to come in and help at running back," he said. "He says they need a big back. They are losing Davis and Spiller next year. He says Clemson is the perfect place for me. They have dual backs with a scat back. They are going to need someone to fill those spots."

The Crimson Tide is also selling early playing time at running back.

"Alabama is pretty much telling me the same thing. They want me to come in and play running back," stated Jordan.

Many analysts project Jordan as a linebacker in college, but that is not where he expects to play.

"I don't care too much about linebacker so teams don't really talk to me too much about that," said Jordan.

Practice for his senior season will begin next week.

"We are not practicing yet. We are in a dead period. I have been working out at the school. The dead period ends on Friday so we will start practice next week," Jordan added.
