It has been an eventful eight days for the Syracuse Orange football program. They added yet another commitment on Sunday in Dix Hills (N.Y.) Half Hollow Hills West wide receiver Cameron Jordan. Jordan visited the campus on Saturday, took the night to weigh his options, and pulled the trigger on Sunday.
"I (committed) to Syracuse because of the great coaching staff they have," Jordan told CuseNation.com. "And the style of offense they run."
Jordan is a 6-foot-4 wideout who runs very well, especially for his size. He was clocked at 4.51 in the 40-yard dash at The Opening regional in Washington (D.C.). He has run as low as 4.43 in various camps.
Having an outside wide receiver with that kind of size and speed is an ideal fit for Dino Babers' offensive system.
Jordan's primary recruiters were Mike Hart and Kim McCloud.
The Half Hollow Hills standout gives Syracuse four commitments at the wide receiver position in the 2017 class. He joins outside receiver Joshua Palmer and slot receivers Sharod Johnson and Nykeim Johnson.
He is also Syracuse's second commitment from New York State, joining three-star athlete Eric Coley.
Jordan picked Syracuse over offers from Boston College, Wake Forest, Buffalo, UConn, Stony Brook and Temple.
