Sooners Sitting Pretty for Jordan

Despite having offers from schools across the country, it seems as though Blinn Junior College wide receiver Justin Jordan has already narrowed the list down to a Top 2. And, according to him, Oklahoma made the list. So what are the positives for his top schools? SoonersIllustrated has the update.

After tearing things up on the gridiron at Blinn Junior College in his first season, wide receiver Justin Jordan has more options than he could have imagined. But it seems like only a couple will do.

"I would say that Oklahoma and California are my favorites right now," Jordan said. "I have not visited any schools, but I have kept in touch with the coaches at those two schools."

Jordan, the former Plano (TX) athlete who stands 5-foot-11 and weighs in at 190 pounds, has other offers from Arizona, Southern Mississippi, Kansas State, Alabama-Birmingham, New Mexico, Utah, and Troy State.

But as stated earlier, it seems as though Jordan is focused to the two, at least for now. While he likes the fact that Cal plays in the Pac-10 and has a high number of athletes graduating, it sounds as if all eyes are on OU.

"They (Oklahoma) are pursuing me pretty hard," Jordan said. "Coach Jay Norvell and I talk just about everyday."

He went into detail, or lack there of, about what he likes best about the Sooner program.

"I mean it's OU and that is all I have to say about that," Jordan said. "You can't put into words how good that program is. And if you did, it would take something away from them."

Last season for the Buccaneers, Jordan hauled in 30 passes for almost 400 yards and nine touchdowns. Right now he is majoring in criminal justice, but is unsure if he wants to continue in that field.

He said that he looks to make a decision in a couple of weeks.
