MSU Camp: Matthew Jordan

Quarterback Matthew Jordan of Jackson, Alabama is quietly putting together a lengthy list of college football scholarship offers. The personable Jordan reports that several schools have made the big step of making an official offer, but he is still working hard to ensure he knows his true value as a college football prospect.

"I think I did pretty good in camp," said Jordan of his time at Mississippi State. "I got a lot of time with Coach (Les) Koenning and I feel like that went pretty good.

"He told me that I looked pretty good, but there were a couple of little things he would want me to work on if I came here.

"He is supposed to give me a call in a couple of weeks and let me know how things are going."

So far the Bulldogs have not pulled the trigger on an offer, but the chance to play for Coach Dan Mullen is something that interests the Alabama standout.

"It's an honor to be able to work with Coach Mullen," said Jordan. "I got to talk to him some when we were out on the field and I like him."

While Mississippi State has not extended an offer to Jordan, several other schools have.

"So far I have 17 offers right now," said Jordan. "Some of the bigger ones are Nebraska, Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe and UAB.

"Distance is sort of a factor, but not too big.

"I am looking at the offense that everybody is running and things like that.

"I just want to go somewhere that I feel at home and where I am comfortable.

"Right now, I would say my top schools are Nebraska, Georgia Tech, South Alabama, Louisiana-Lafayette and Middle Tennessee."
