Scout.com ranks Mabin a "four-star" prospect and the 16th best cornerback in the class of 2007. He rushed for over 4,000 yards in his career. Despite Jordan's impressive numbers, most believe he will develop into a top flight cornerback prospect.
"I had a game on Friday so I couldn't make it down until Saturday morning. The Panthers played a great game against Toledo. It was a good win for them. My cousin, Dorin (Dickerson), was my host for the weekend."
Jordan has received scholarship offers from Pitt, Northwestern, Indiana, Cincinnati, Akron and Kent State. He rushed for 1,495 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior in 2005. As a sophomore, he rushed for 1,775 yards and scored 25 touchdowns. He also topped the 1,000-yard plateau as a freshman in 2003. Jordan is capable of running a 4.5 forty-yard dash.
"I really wanted to get to know the players and talk with some of them. Dorin and I hung out and watched some college football then we went to hang out with some players. I got to speak with H.B. Blades and Darrelle Revis for a while. Darrelle spent a good bit of time with my talking about his experience as a freshman and his development through the years. It gave me good perspective on what to look forward to in the future."
"H.B. and Darrelle had great things to say about Pitt and the coaching staff. They said it was a great place to play football."
Mabin stated one of the highlights of the trip was dinner with Head Coach Dave Wannstedt and his wife at Dave and Busters on Saturday night.
Jordan spent additional time talking with freshman offensive guard Joe Thomas and cornerback Jovani Chappel. "I thought my talk with Joe helped out," he said. "We're both from the same part of Ohio and he told me how nice it was to be close to home and have family come watch you play."
"I enjoyed my visit this weekend. It was really good. I have completed visits to Pitt and Northwestern and I'll make a decision soon. I just have to sit down with my family and talk things over."
