Interest Building for Smallwood

Still awaiting that first offer, Jenks (Okla.) High wideout Jordan Smallwood feels confident it sits around the corner.

After an impressive junior outing with the powerhouse Trojans, Jordan Smallwood quickly jumped on the radar of home-state schools Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

It was in the last few months that Nebraska, Arkansas, and Kansas State have followed.

"Kansas State sent me a camp invite last week," said Smallwood. "Said they're very interested in me and looking forward to seeing me."

He continued, "I've been talking with Arkansas' receivers coach, Coach Cinkovich. I was wanting to go to their junior day, but couldn't (due to personal reasons.) So they really want to get me up there for spring ball, catch a practice or the spring game."

Nebraska and Oklahoma fall in the same boat.

However, the only reason Smallwood was unable to attend the Huskers' junior day was simply because it landed on the same day as Oklahoma State's (Feb. 18)

"Since OSU was closer, my dad and I decided to just go there instead," explained Smallwood. "I'm still really interested in Nebraska. We're thinking about maybe going up for the spring game. We'll see."

"I might try to get to an OU camp."

So, ultimately, OSU was the only junior day Smallwood made this spring.

"It was great!" he exclaimed. "I got to talk to all the coaches. They said they'll be at my spring practice to see me, and that they want me to go out to the camps in June."

What's communication with the Cowboys been like since then?

"Oh, I'm still talking to them completely," Smallwood stressed. "They've been on me hard."

As Smallwood and his family attempt to create a "doable" visit schedule for the upcoming months, the Jenks product notes, "I'm just enjoying the process right now. The offers will come at the right time. I just have to focus on my game, and the things I can control right now. But I'm definitely excited about the interest I'm getting."

"Spring's going to be big for me."

The only travel set in stone is a trip to Dallas at the end of the month for the Nike Skills Camp (March 25). You can also expect to see the 6'2, 192-pounder catching passes the day before at the Elite 11 Quarterback Camp at Cowboys Stadium.
