UNC Now Leads for Jordan

Asheton Jordan attended his first North Carolina home game Saturday and couldn't help but leave impressed.

"I really liked how it was at North Carolina," Jordan said. "I liked the [football] building and the facilities.

"I like USC too, but that put [UNC] at the top from how it was up there. They had a nice atmosphere up there. It put North Carolina at the top."

Earlier in the season Jordan attended South Carolina's contest with South Carolina State.

Last Wednesday UNC contacted Jordan's father and extended a special game invitation to the 6-foot, 200-pound athlete from Goose Creek (S.C.) Stratford.

"I'm getting recruited by South Carolina, too," Jordan said. "I just really wanted to see a good game and I thought that would be a real good game to go to."

Before the game kicked off, Jordan was taken on a tour of the campus.

"It's a real nice campus and I really liked it," Jordan said. "I had seen it when I went up there for camp. I really liked it when I was up there. It's a real big, nice campus.

"I didn't really get to see the weight room at camp. [This time], I saw the weight room and where the players sit and watch film, and just more of the [football building]."

Following the game, Jordan spoke with running back coach Kenny Browning, his primary recruiter Sam Pittman, and receivers coach Charlie Williams.

"They were basically telling me about how it is up there, about the atmosphere, and how young their team is," Jordan said. "They're still working to get better and they expect to finish up the season really strong."

Jordan, who has a verbal offer from North Carolina, said the Tar Heels are recruiting him as an "athlete." The coaches have told him they like him best as a wide receiver or running back. But the possibilities of free safety and hybrid back have been brought up, also.

"It really doesn't matter to me [where I play], I just like playing," Jordan said. "If I had to pick, I probably like running back the most."

At Stratford, Jordan is the primary offensive weapon being used as both a runner and a receiver. He has accumulated over 1,000 all-purpose yards and ten all-purpose touchdowns.

Jordan said he plans to return to UNC for a future game. He is also slated to attend the South Carolina-Clemson game in Columbia.
