One of the top dual-threat quarterbacks in the nation says that his decision is coming. Matthew Jordan from Jackson (Ala.) has a top five and with a decision just a week away.

Matthew Jordan from Jackson (Ala.) has been busy recently. The 6-foot-2 and 190-pound quarterback returned from a long trip to see a Big Ten program and competed in a recent tournament as well.

"I have been a little busy," Jordan said. "I went from Nebraska to do a 7-on-7 tournament at South Alabama which is in Mobile. We played pretty good. We took second."

Looking back at the trip to Nebraska Jordan says that it was a long trip. It was long mostly because of all of the connecting flights that he had to make. Through all of the travel though Jordan some some impressive things and had an unforgettable moment holding the Heisman Trophy.

"Nebraska was pretty good overall. It was a long ways and a long trip for me. I had to drive to Gulfport, Miss. back to Atlanta then to Minneapolis and finally to Lincoln.

"When I got to Nebraska the facilities are really, really nice. Nebraska has good football fans and it seems like a good football town. I got a chance to hold the Heisman Trophy while I was there."

Jordan says that he's getting close to making his decision. He says that he is down to five teams and plans on making his college announcement next weekend. Jordan says there will be a celebration after the announcement then it's back to work.

"I am actually really close to making a decision," Jordan said. "I am going to announce my decision next Saturday. I am down to five schools. They are Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Nebraska, Middle Tennessee State and Louisiana-Lafayette.

"After I do my announcement we will probably celebrate and have a Bar-B-Que with the family. I am going to do some more tournaments with my team this summer and I will be busy working out getting ready for my senior season."
