Tommy Jordan Leaves for Home

Sources close to the situation have indicated that true freshman offensive lineman Tommy Jordan has gone home this semester after early enrolling for just a couple of days at the University of Florida. The 6-5, 300 pound lineman from Ridgefield, Connecticut is expected to return in the summer but will not participate this spring according to those sources.

Florida head coach Will Muschamp has done a remarkable job keeping a recruiting class together in his short time as the Florida coach. The Gators now have seven early entrants that are taking classes and will participate this spring in football.

Quarterback Jeff Driskel, running back Mike Blakely, receiver Javares McRoy, tight end A.C. Leonard, defensive end Clay Burton, cornerback Pop Saunders, and punter Kyle Christy have all enrolled at Florida early and are currently taking classes.

The rules are not clear on a player that attends class and then leaves before signing his national letter of intent, but the thought is he is bound to Florida for one year. Regardless, sources are saying that Jordan intends to return to Florida in the summer when the rest of the 2011 recruiting class will be starting classes at Florida.

We will have more as soon as we can and we have been unsuccessful in reaching Jordan to add to this story.
