Jordan Hoping for More Offers

Pack Pride talks with Chesapeake (VA) Great Bridge defensive end Brian Jordan about his recent visit to Raleigh and interest in NC State.

Chesapeake (VA) Great Bridge defensive end Brian Jordan holds an offer from Old Dominion and several other schools have been consistently sending him mail. One of those schools in NC State, and Jordan is very high on the Pack.

One reason for that is Jordan's ties to the state of North Carolina. The 6-4, 207 pound speedy end lived in Durham during the earliest years of his life before moving to Virginia. Despite the move he's always followed the teams from the state he was born in.

"We moved to Virginia from Durham in like 1992 or 1993, so NC State has always been a favorite of mine," Jordan said. "NC State and UNC have always been my two favorites since I was young."

Through five games Great Bridge is 4-1 and Jordan is off to a fast start.

"I'm the kind of person who thinks I'm never doing as good as I should be doing," he continued. "People tell me I played great or whatever, but to me I haven't played as good as I want to. I'm always going to be like that."

Jordan's lone offer is from Old Dominion, but he has received mail from Louisville, South Carolina, Clemson, Liberty, Kent State and NC State recently.

He has plans to take a few visits in the near future, and he just returned from a trip to one of his favorites schools.

"I'm taking a visit to Marshall on October 3 and the coach from Liberty is setting up a trip for me around October 8, I think," he said. "I actually just visited NC State last Saturday with Carvin Powell when they played East Carolina.

"We met up at the weight room about 9 o'clock after we checked in. Then we had breakfast and talked to the academic advisers about the academics for student-athletes. We went outside on the field to see the team warming up, then we went into the stands to watch the game.

"The school spirit really stood out a lot to me. I like how the campus reacts to sports. I just felt like there was a lot of team spirit and some great NC State fans."

Jordan said he believes he will soon receiver offers from South Carolina, Marshall and Liberty.
