Nation's No. 1 Tight End Brevin Jordan Breaks Down Visit to Miami

Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman four-star tight end Brevin Jordan, rated No. 1 at his position in the 2018 class, took an important visit to longtime contender Miami this week...

Brevin Jordan has long been enthralled by the tight end tradition at Miami and the nation's No. 1 prospect at that position made a much-anticipated stop on campus this week.

The four-star from national powerhouse Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman told the visit definitely met his expectations, as he was able to sit down with coaches, dissect the future depth chart and even meet with a university president.

"It was overwhelming, honestly," Jordan said. "I was talking to all the coaches and had lunch with coach (Mark) Richt and his wife along with coach (Todd) Hartley and my family. The food was great, the atmosphere is great, the weather is just fantastic. I met with the president of the school for about 15 minutes. Everything about the visit was great and just overwhelming."

In a not-so-subtle tweet earlier this week, Hartley wrote that he was "Rollin' out the RED CARPET today for the next member of #TEU," and Jordan said the Canes' tight ends coach certainly did that.

"He definitely rolled out the red carpet," Jordan said. "We went to the marine part of campus and the school is on the beach. We went to the beach, just looking at the school. Everything was cool and coach Hartley definitely did a good job hosting us.

"I went to practice (Tuesday) and coach Hartley was hinting at what I would do. We also watched film of how they used David Njoku and Chris Herndon last year. They've told me that their top tight end targets are me and Will Mallory from Jacksonville. Next year, they're trying to get two athletic tight ends that can do it all, so they showed me how they would use us in that offense if we were to go there. Early playing would be huge. To start as a true freshman would be big time, so I'd say that plays a role in the recruiting process."

Jordan visited UCLA in March and is set to visit Michigan later this week. Those two, along with the Hurricanes, would appear to have separated themselves from the pack but the 6-foot-3, 257-pound Jordan said he's in no rush to make a decision.

"Miami has always been in my top group," Jordan said. "There really isn't a No. 1, No. 2 or No. 3 order with Miami, UCLA or Michigan. There's the top schools, then the middle schools and the lower schools. Miami is up top for sure.

"I'm not sure what's next after the Michigan visit. We'll have to see."

Jordan was credited with 27 catches for 501 yards and nine touchdowns in 15 games as a junior last season.
