Dallas (Texas) Greenhill linebacker/defensive end
Alvin Jordan is one of those athletic big men who could project at a
couple of different positions on the college level.
"I played linebacker and running
back last season," Jordan said. "I think most schools
are looking at me as a linebacker or a defensive end on the next level. I think
a couple of schools have mentioned me as a tight end or maybe a third down
fullback, but I'm probably going to end up on defense."
The 6-foot-2, 235-pound
Jordan very well could end up at
defensive end on the next level with his 4.85 second 40-yard dash speed. He runs
a blazing a shuttle time as well.
"I have been getting stuff from a
lot of schools, all of the Big 12 and most of the SEC. I have been in close
contact with Texas A&M and Arkansas and
some with Iowa
State. They sent me their
card and told me to call them whenever I wanted."
Jordan played running back last year for
his high school team where he rushed for 960 yards and 12 touchdowns.
"I am looking at Texas, Texas A&M, Iowa
State, Alabama and Arkansas. I really kind
of want to stay in the Big 12, but if I decide to leave and go somewhere else it
would be Arkansas or Alabama."
Jordan could be one of those guys that
makes an early decision if the right offer comes along.
"I don't know if I am going to
commit early or wait a while and take visits. We will just have to see what
comes along and how I feel with the coaches and all of that."
