Mississippi Gulf Coast defensive end Carson Jordan committed to WKU during his official visit

Mississippi Gulf Coast defensive end Carson Jordan made the trip to Bowling Green for an official visit over the weekend and made the decision to become a Hilltopper before leaving town.

A 6-foot-3, 260-pound prospect spent time visiting with the coaching staff, touring campus and the football facilities during his stay on the Hill.

"I really liked the players and coaches," Jordan told WKU Insider on Sunday afternoon.  "It just felt like the right place.  I liked what I saw of the facilities and the school."

Jordan, who will have two years of eligibility remaining, recorded 46 tackles, including a pair of sacks and five tackles for a loss for Mississippi Gulf Coast last season.

The new WKU commit played his prep ball at Poplarville (Miss.) Hancock where he garnered 6A All-State honors from the Mississippi Association of Coaches as a senior.  The expectations at WKU will be similar to his prior accomplishments.

"They expect me to be an All-Conference player," he said, also adding that the staff likes how he plays with a "high motor."

Jordan also made official visits with Utah State and Colorado, and also considered Cincinnati and East Carolina before making his commitment to WKU.
