Jacksonville (FL) Bishop Kenny offensive tackle Tyler Jordan has emerged as a top prospect in the state of Florida. Yesterday was a significant day in his recruitment as he received offers from California, Kentucky, and Ohio State.
The Buckeyes were the first of the three to offer and he discussed his conversation with the Buckeyes.
"I had messaged with Coach Hinton on Facebook some and was told to give him a call," Jordan said. "When I did, he told me he wanted to offer me."
"Coach Hinton is my area recruiter," he added. "He said they really like me as a player. He likes my film. He said I'm athletic and play with a nastiness they like from their linemen."
The offer from Ohio State took Jordan by surprise but he's well aware of what they bring to the table.
"I was excited," he admitted. "It was unexpected. It means a lot because of the reputation they have as a great school and a top football program."
"I like their success under Coach Meyer," Jordan continued. "Coach Warinner has a great reputation as an offensive line coach as well. They are also a perennial top five program too and that is huge."
Despite the flurry of offers for Jordan he isn't in any hurry to make a decision and has equal interest in every school at this juncture.
"I'm keeping my options open now," he told Scout. "I'm considering all the schools that have offered at this point."
A few visits are in the plans for the three-star junior out of Florida.
"I am visiting Georgia on Saturday and Florida on Monday," said Jordan. "I also want to check out Ohio State in the Spring."
