Is Jordan Colorado's top Wide Receiver prospect?
From: Hayward, California
High School: Hayward
"My top schools right now are Kansas State, Miami, Cal, Oklahoma, LSU, Oregon, and Colorado. I have offers from all of them except Miami, but I think they are getting ready to."
Robert says he has offers from all of the Pac 10, half of the Big 12, two SEC schools, and some lower level schools. He figures it to be around 25-30, with most of them being official.
Since Robert likes seven schools he says he will try to cut it down to five by the end of the season. He also says that Colorado has a pretty good chance of being one of the five left standing.
"Colorado is looking pretty good to me right now. I actually just got off the phone with Coach Gilmore and he was telling me that they don't have a lot coming back for next year and that me and Cameron Colvin from De La Salle are two of their top receiver prospects. He has called me every week and tells me that they might only take one guy this class at receiver and they would like me to be the guy. I know they are losing Hackett, McCoy, and some other guys and that is eye-catching to me because it gives me the opportunity of coming in and playing early. They have a lot to offer me there."
If he did come to CU though, would that be against the wishes of his older brother who plays for Big 12 North rival Kansas State?
"Randy is kind of keeping his distance. He knows that it is my decision and he will probably only help me out a little bit. I don't think he will try to influence me because he knows if he wanted to he probably could."
It would seem that CU is fighting an uphill battle for Jordan. Not only with K-State, but Robert's Grandma and Mother also have their preference on where he should go.
"They both want to see me at Cal and growing up in the bay area I have always been around the school. But they are not one of the front-runners right now even though I do like them."
When Robert is ready to schedule his visits it appears that fellow highly regarded teammate Phillip Mbakagu may accompany him on many, if not all of them.
"Me and him would like to go to the same school so we are trying to get the same visits lined up. We talk about what we are going to do everyday. Colorado is looking pretty good."
This sounds nice but it appears that Phillip has scheduled four visits and CU is not one of the leaders to land his last one. Robert thinks the Buffs still have a shot.
"I know that he likes Colorado because we both talk about Colorado a lot."
Getting a combo like them to Boulder may be just what the doctor ordered as it can be argued that receivers and defensive lineman are the biggest priorities in this class.
So far on the year Robert has three receiving touchdowns, one punt return touchdown, and one kickoff return touchdown. He has those three receiving touchdowns despite only having eight catches.
"Schools are double teaming me so it has been hard for our quarterback to get me the ball."
Hayward took on San Leandro Friday night in a game that was expected to attract 9,000 people. It was such a hot ticket that pop entertainer P. Diddy was expected to drop by at halftime.
Buffcountry will keep close tabs on Jordan this recruiting cycle to see if CU lands one of his five vists and also to see if the Buffs can reel in this top west coast prospect.
Robert carries a 3.1 GPA and tales his SAT this weekend. He would like to major in Sports Medicine or Business.
