West Montgomery (Mt Gilead, NC) standout Vince Jordan has been busy hitting the camp circuit as he works to earn his first scholarship offer. Measured at 5-10, 197 pounds, Jordan ran a blistering 4.35-second 40-yard dash at the Shrine Bowl combine held at Rockingham earlier this year. He had equally impressive marks in the pro shuttle (4.06-seconds) and vertical jump (35.9-inches). The rising senior has already hit three in-state camps with a fourth set to begin today.
"I've already been to Wake Forest, Duke and Appalachian State," said Jordan. "All of them pretty much told me they'd be in touch with me. I'll be at State this week from Monday through Wednesday."
With family connections to NC State that have been well documented, Jordan said he's hopeful of impressing the Wolfpack coaches enough to garner an offer.
"I'm really interested in State and I'd love to play there," he said. "Coach Bridge came by the school to check on me. I'm going to camp hoping that I impress them enough to get an offer. I'd probably commit if they offered but I'm not completely sure."
After rushing for 1,269 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior, Jordan will likely get a close look at either running back or fullback while at NC State's camp. However, he has a build that could project him at safety as well. Regardless of the position, Jordan says he's content to contribute where ever he's needed.
"I'm willing to learn whatever position they need me," he said. "If they need a safety, then I'll play safety. If given a choice I'd probably prefer running back, though."
Jordan indicated that NC State and Auburn are showing him the most attention. He may camp with Auburn in July.
Pack Pride rated Jordan as the No. 35 player in North Carolina.
