Jags Offer Texas Athlete

South Alabama football will need to keep increasing the quality of it's athletes as it prepares for it's first FBS schedule in 2012. They hope to make progress toward that goal with their recruitment of a Texas standout.

Brett Jordan is not a familiar name to those on the football recruiting trail, but basketball recruitniks might find it familiar. Brett's older brother, DeAndre, played center for Texas A&M and has been logging quality minutes for the Los Angeles Clippers for the past three seasons. Brett himself was strictly a basketball player until he finally gave into the pleas of the Bellaire High School football staff.

As a junior he helped a team that has rarely posted winning seasons to a 6-5 record and was named second team all-district. As a senior they bettered that mark to 7-4 and Jordan caught 5 passes for 39 yards and a touchdown on a predominantly running team. Jordan's blocking ability, honed by playing an inside position on the basketball court, was a big factor in their success.

The next step in his career will hopefully be taking his skills to the college level. He's gotten looks from schools like Baylor, Texas A&M and Arkansas, but it is the University of South Alabama that has stepped up with an offer. Jordan is definitely interested in the FBS football newcomer and will visit in January. Helping USA's cause in attracting the athletic tight end is that his friend Delvin Dickerson signed to play basketball with the Jags in November.
