It was the seventh offer for Jordan, one of the West region's top tight ends in the 2018 class. And it was a major one, especially since the 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect from Las Vegas (Nev.) Bishop Gorman visited USC in February and walked away very impressed with what he saw.
"The offer is huge -- words can't even explain, honestly," Jordan told Scout.com. "I honestly teared up hearing that.
"It has always been a childhood favorite growing up, especially everything with Reggie Bush. For three straight seasons growing up I wore No. 5 strictly because of him. I also like the way they use their tight ends."
The Trojans already hold a commitment at Bishop Gorman from four-star safety Bubba Bolden, and Jordan hears about that daily.
"Bubba tells me every day I'm going to USC," Jordan said.
Despite the push from a teammate, Jordan plans to take his time with the recruiting process given how busy it has become in recent months. There are no visits lined up just yet, but a trip to UCLA could be in the works.
"I want to get out to UCLA and try to make that camp (this summer)," Jordan said. "As of now, I'm worried about my junior season and spring ball and just trying to get better. I'm really just focusing on having a break-out junior year."
Jordan had 10 receptions for 166 yards and four touchdowns in 12 games as a sophomore last season. He also saw significant time at linebacker, helping Bishop Gorman to another undefeated mark.
