Jordan-Brown thinks highly of Wake

Jorian Jordan-Brown made the short trip to Wake Forest a while back and he's glad he made the trip. The Mallard Creek receiver stopped by Winston-Salem for a junior day with the Deacs earlier this year, the the only time he has ever visited Wake Forest...

The 6-1, 178-pound receiver plays with some of the state's top talents at Mallard Creek and he's making a name for himself. Jordan-Brown is still waiting for his first offer to come in but he's confident that if he continues to put in work and do what he's doing then those offers will come.

"I've talked to Coach Galloway a lot about getting down to camp with them this summer," Jordan-Brown told

It looks like it will take a strong camp performance for Jordan-Brown to earn an offer. That's not just what Wake has hinted. That seems to be the consensus from a number of schools, most of them being in-state programs.

"The visit I took to Wake Forest was very nice," he recalled. "They showed us a PowerPoint presentation and it blew my mind. They talked about how nice the school is. It's private so not that many people are in each of the classes. At some schools there will be like 100 people in the classroom. At Wake it's very small so you have smaller classes and a better chance to actually learn.

"The school itself is small so you don't have to worry about getting lost or anything. It's a great atmosphere also."

The academic angle was clearly appealing to Jordan-Brown but he said he's also impressed with the Deacs success on the field under Jim Grobe. Because of that an offer from Wake, if it comes, would cause him to pause and think hard about his future.

That said, he doesn't have any favorites. "There are no favorites. I'm just going along with the recruiting process," he said.

Jordan-Brown told DeaconSports that Wake Forest and Duke have recruited him the hardest and he plans on camping at both schools this summer.
