Bishop Gorman sophomore Brevin Jordan visits USC and UCLA

Mar. 18 -- After visits to USC and UCLA late last month, Bishop Gorman sophomore tight end has a clear leader in his recruitment...

Las Vegas (Nev.) sophomore tight end Brevin Jordan may end up being the next best thing out of Bishop Gorman High School. 

At 6-foot-3, 225-pounds, Jordan ran a 4.78 40-yard dash and a 4.21 shuttle time at The Opening Regional in Redondo Beach (Calif.) last month.

Jordan may not yet have the prototypical height of a pro-style tight end, but his athleticism and versatility will draw interest from colleges running various types of offenses. 

Last month, Jordan was able to unofficially visit both USC and UCLA. Neither school has offered Jordan a scholarship, but that could change in the near future. 

Jordan arrived at USC Friday night with a dozen of his Bishop Gorman teammates and then returned the next morning for the Trojans' Junior Day. 

“I really liked my trip to USC,” said Jordan. “Honestly, I really learned a lot from it. The advice that Coach [John] Baxter — the tight ends coach — gave me was something that stood out. 

“He gave me some great life lessons. He was telling me to just measure down my decisions. It’s okay of I don’t go to USC or UCLA, just make decisions that will benefit me most so that I can be successful in life.”

Touring the campus with his teammates, Jordan had nothing but positive reviews of USC. 

“Everything about USC is beautiful,” said Jordan. “The campus is beautiful, and it’s just the tradition of USC. They’ve sent so many people to the league. Everything about USC has me interested in them.”

While USC has not verbally offered Jordan a scholarship, the subject did come up on his visit. 

“The offer did come up, but they told me they don’t just give offers out without evaluating the player,” said Jordan. “They just told me to be patient and that they want to build a relationship with me first. 

“Once we go through that process, an offer may very well be on the way.”

Not many recruits have the opportunity to unofficially visit USC and UCLA back-to-back as Jordan did. Just a couple hours after being at USC, Jordan and some of his teammates arrived in Westwood. 

While USC made a positive impression on Jordan, the Bruins will be the team to beat for his commitment, if a scholarship offer comes in the near future. 

“Out of all of the schools that have offered and those who haven’t offered, UCLA is at the top of my board,” said Jordan. “I feel like UCLA fits me the most and that’s where I can see myself playing in the next few years.”

Jordan attempted to articulate his “fit” with UCLA. 

“It’s like something I can’t describe,” said Jordan. “Everything about it is special. I see it as a great place, but I also see myself there. I just enjoyed being there that much.”

Jordan is excited about the prospects of going to UCLA, but as with USC, he will have to wait for a scholarship offer. 

“They just told me to be patient while they evaluate my film,” said Jordan. “We’ll see what happens after that… maybe they’ll pull an offer.”

Next up for Jordan will be trips to the Midwest and Texas. 

“Dorian [Thompson-Robinson] and I are definitely visiting Ohio State,” said Jordan. “I’m going to try to get out to TCU and Texas as well.”
