Jordan looking forward to Nebraska

Last year was an extraordinary year for Nebraska when it came to recruiting in Arizona. Nebraska received commitments from five prep players and one junior college player. This year, Nebraska already has the commitment of Keelan Johnson from Arizona, and this weekend Nebraska is bringing in a pair of the top players at their positions in the state of Arizona.

Dion Jordan says that the season has been a little hit and miss. The 6-foot-6 and 210-pound Jordan and his team from Chandler (Ariz.) have enjoyed success and defeat so early in the season.

"It's going pretty good," Jordan said. "Our first week we won 50-7. Last week, the tables got turned. We lost, 36-39."

Jordan is having an impact on the defensive side of the ball already, but offensively it's another story. He is having a hard time through the coverage that they are throwing at him.

"The first game, I did a lot on defense, I had two or three sacks and some tackles. Offensively, it's been tough to get me the ball because of the double and triple teams."

Jordan is set to take his first official visit this weekend and will be on the road to another Big 12 North team in two weeks. "Right now I have two set up. I have Nebraska set up for this weekend and the 28th or the 29th, I will be visiting Colorado."

On his trips, Jordan says that he is just looking to be comfortable with the surroundings and the people associated with the program. "Most likely, I am looking to try and just be comfortable. I want to meet the players, meet Coach Bill Callahan and things like that."

Nebraska has broadened the scope of recruiting Jordan saying that he could play either offense or defense in Lincoln. Jordan doesn't care where he plays, he just wants to play.

"Nebraska likes me as a defensive end or a tight end. They are talking about both. To me personally, it doesn't matter where I play. I just want to get on the field."

"I have played a lot of offense all of my life. Just recently, I started playing on the defensive side of the ball. It really doesn't matter to me where I play though."

Jordan isn't coming to Nebraska alone. He is bringing a teammate that also has a Nebraska offer. "Marc Anthony is going this weekend for his official visit to Nebraska too."
