The nation's No. 33 tight end has updated his list of favorites, and the Clemson Tigers are his new No. 1 school.

TE Jordan Black Profile

He has yet to receive an offer from any of the schools in his top three, but he feels there's a very good chance one of the three will pull the trigger.

"I'd say Clemson leads right now," said Jordan Black. "Auburn is my second favorite school right now. And I'd say Louisville is third. The schools that have offered (Florida International and UAB) are fourth and fifth for me."

"In my top three schools, I think I have the best chance of getting an offer from Louisville. They've given me the most positive feedback. I talk to them at least once a month. At their camp I was at the top of my game. The coaches had nothing but good things to say about me. Coach (Matt) Wells said they're gonna come watch a few games next year."

Black talked about what he liked of his top three schools.

Clemson: "It's like a small town there, like it is here. Clemson is like downtown Valdosta. It's more of a small town feel. I like the country environment there. That's my kind of place."

Auburn: "It's like Clemson, a small town. Their campus is really nice, and their stadium is really nice."

Louisville: "I like their football facilities. The facilities are fairly new. The only thing bad about Louisville is that it's far away. I do like it there, though. If I was to go to college there I'd have to get use to the distance."

Black has a general idea about his official visits.

"I haven't really sat down and thought about my official visits yet, but I'd like to go to my top three schools (Clemson, Auburn, Louisville)," he said.

"I think I'll take a visit to UAB, too. I'd like to try to get down to FIU. I've tried to get down there, but it's never worked out. I'm not sure that I wanna visit there, but I'm not ruling it out either."

Over the summer Black attended camps at Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Louisville, South Carolina, and UAB. His focus has now shifted from recruiting to the upcoming season.

Lowndes High School is expected to compete for another state title in the competitive 5A classification of Georgia.

Black is currently ranked as the No. 33 tight end in the country according to Scout.com.
