RB Chris Jordan Profile

4-star prospect Chris Jordan took his official visit to Clemson earlier this month when the Tigers faced Boston College.

"It was great," Jordan told CUTigers.com. "I went with my mom and dad. They enjoyed it a lot. "The atmosphere was amazing. When the Tigers ran down the hill the stadium went crazy. I have never experienced anything like it."

Vickery Hall and the Clemson academic support for athletes made a big impression on Jordan and his family.

"We went to Vickery Hall and learned about the academic support. I was really drawn to the academics. They do a great job of helping the players graduate," said Jordan.

A freshman who has seen plenty of playing time this fall was Jordan's player host during the visit.

"Marcus Gilchrist was my player host. I got to talk with a lot of the players. Everyone was bummed out since they lost so we just hung around with a couple of the players. We just joked around and had a good time," said Jordan.

Coach Bowden spent time talking with Jordan during the visit.

"I talked with coach Bowden a good bit. He is a good Christian man. I liked that. He talked about his faith. He really wasn't trying to push the university which I enjoyed. I knew all about Clemson because I had heard that all day. He just talked to me about his plans for me. He talked about their game plan also," said Jordan.

The Clemson coaching staff told Jordan how he could fit in with the Tigers.

"Clemson is looking for a big running back. They need a replacement for James Davis when he leaves for the NFL. Coach Bowden told me they are looking for a good quality guy with positive character. He wants to bring in good guys that are going to do the right things," said Jordan.

How did Jordan rate his visit to Tigertown?

"I would give it an eight or nine," replied the two-way standout.

When asked about his current leader, Jordan responded, "I would have Clemson and Alabama even. I really can't establish a leader right now."

Next up will be an official visit to his other leader.

"I am going to Alabama on December 8th for an official visit," said Jordan.

A decision could come over the next few weeks.

"I am going to try to make it before Christmas break. If not I will do it whenever I am ready. I could wait until signing day. It is going to be a hard decision," said Jordan.
