How was the visit Saturday?
"It was an awesome visit as usual. Definitely the best one yet, they played a highly ranked team and were able to pull out the win. This game really showed that players really believe in Coach [Paul] Johnson and what he's doing."
"Yellow Jacket Alley before the game was great. All the fans were really supportive and were yelling out our names. They are really great. I finally got to meet "Too Tall" (Emanuel Dieke) and that was fun. Just seeing the game and being there was an awesome experience knowing that I'm gonna be a Jacket!"
GT commits Jordan Luallen & Emanuel Dieke
Who were all the recruits at the game Jordan talked to?
"At the game, I talked to "Too Tall." He's excited about coming in early so he can put on weight early. I was able to hang out with Ricky Johnson. He was a really nice, really cool guy. That was pretty cool to meet him. He was on his official visit, so I was able to ask him what he thought about Georgia Tech and tell him what I thought about Tech."
"I also talked to Rod [Sweeting], Ray [Beno], Jay Finch, Daniel Drummond, Jemea Thomas and J.C. [Lanier]. I was able to hang out with Orwin Smith, too. I talked with him. He loved the visit and had a great time. I was telling him that this would really be a great time for him to join. He said that Coach Johnson was really turning things around and that he loved the school. He said he has faith in Coach Johnson, everything he said was really positive."
Was Stephen Hill able to make the game?
"No, he wasn't able to make it. He had originally scheduled his official visit to Central Florida but canceled or postponed it. Then he had signed up to come to the Tech game, but couldn't make it because of family stuff. I was giving him updates and texting him throughout the game though."
Luallen is known to be calling around and trying to help pitch in with recruiting. Who has he been targeting right now?
"Still Orwin, I talk to him a lot. He's my boy and I'm not giving up on him. I'm still trying to stay in touch every week or so with Daniel Hood and Jonathan Davis. I don't want to really bother them, but still hit them up enough to let them know they are wanted at Georgia Tech."
"Stephen Hill, we have built up a really good relationship. We talk about three to four times a week. We're going to play in the Offense-Defense Bowl together. We'll be playing on the East Team together. I didn't want to continue waiting on the Army All-American people, because I wanted to make sure and play in a big-time game."
Is early enrollment going to happen for Jordan?
"I haven't ruled that out. It's still a possibility and could happen. I'm still debating. I'm just praying and seeing where God wants me right now. So I should know something in the next two weeks."
Jordan has all the qualities of being a future leader and it shouldn't surprise anybody if he becomes a leader and a key player for the Yellow Jackets down the road. The quarterback is leading his high school team this Friday to the sectional championships (3rd round of the state playoffs). Center Grove High School's triple-option attack has been unstoppable averaging over 48 points per game and they should cruise on to the state semi-finals. There is a good chance a rematch of Carmel HS vs Center Grove will be played for the 5A state championship. The two teams have already met resulting in a 33-32 Carmel victory led by Kentucky commit Morgan Newton.
