Offer No. 15 is from Nebraska

Nebraska still out on the recruiting trail and in Alabama to make their latest offer. This signal-caller from Jackson (Ala.) was the latest recipient of a Nebraska offer earlier today.

Jackson (Ala.) quarterback Matthew Jordan is already out of school. The 6-foot-2 and 190-pound Jordan says that his spring game was basically the end of his school year earlier this month.

"My spring went really well," Jordan said. "Our spring game actually was on the 16th. I have been out of school basically since them. I am exempt from finals."

The summer is already here for Jordan and he's not wasting any time getting to work. He says that he's already training for his senior season and he will start summer classes next week so he can graduate early from high school.

"Right now I am just lifting and training. I will start summer classes next week. I carry a 4.08 GPA and am trying to graduate early. I am just taking two elective classes."

Besides summer school Jordan says that he will go to some camps and make some trips. His first camp plan is next week for one of the in-state schools and he's kicking around the idea of taking a long trip in the middle of June.

"I am going to take a couple of trips and hit some camps. I am going to go to Alabama next week for camp. I will go to South Alabama, Tennessee and Auburn too for camps.

"I know that I am going to fly out to Nebraska either for their Big Red Weekend on June 15th or if I can't make it that weekend it will be in late July. I will also go back to South Alabama again, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe and Middle Tennessee State."

When you ask Jordan how he would describe himself on the football field it's really simple. It comes down to his style and how that feeds into the type of offense that Jackson runs.

"First I am a dual threat quarterback," Jordan said. "We run a spread offense that is no huddle and is very up-tempo."

Jordan says that distance will not be a factor with his decision. He is going to consider the type of offense that the school runs and he says he's looking for a feeling about a school.

"I am going to go where I fit in with the offense and someplace where I feel like I am at home. That doesn't necessarily mean it will be close to home. When I know I will know."

The Nebraska offer came today for Jordan and he was very excited about the offer. He says that he's looking forward to taking a trip to Nebraska to see their facilities, meeting the other coaches and just taking everything in.

"Coach Tim Beck is the coach that is recruiting me from Nebraska. Nebraska is definitely a big offer. They have a good team and go to a good bowl game year after year.

"When I take my visit to Nebraska later this summer I want to see their facilities, talk to their Head Coach Bo Pelini, meet the rest of the staff and just see everything that Nebraska has to offer."
