Jordan has a Positive Experience in Madison

Considered one of the Midwest's top wide receivers and UW's top pass-catching target, Trotwood (OH) Madison's A.J. Jordan got to experience Wisconsin's football atmosphere, as well as talking to plenty of key people that could impact his recruitment.

MADISON - 2011 four-star WR A.J. Jordan (Trotwood (OH) Madison High) is fresh off of an official visit at Wisconsin and he's feeling very good about the Badgers. In fact, Jordan says Wisconsin has a slight edge over Michigan at this point.

"They're the highest on my list right now after this weekend," Jordan said. "I felt really comfortable there and the whole experience was really good. I will be going to Michigan soon too so we will see but I have to call Michigan first to set that up.""

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound Jordan is an athlete with huge upside. He's a great downfield threat with nice blocking ability and a good frame. He has a rare combination of speed and size that will make him a nice offensive weapon when he gets more reps running routes. Jordan said Receivers Coach DelVaughn Alexander spent a lot of one-on-one time with him this weekend.

"Coach Alexander talked to me about how they could use me," Jordan said. "He said they have a lot of big, tall receivers that do some things in their offense but I could do some different things for them. He was saying since I'm smaller and faster all around the field, I could play a few different positions. He showed me a little film too so I could see how they run everything. It was real cool."

Holding offers from Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky Michigan, Michigan State, Purdue and West Virginia, Jordan went on to describe his time on the UW campus.

"It went really well," he said. "I flew in and got there in the morning so I had some time to relax. I went to the stadium after breakfast and met with the coaches. It was nice meeting other recruits there and talking to coaches and all. It was just good to see everyone. Then we watched the game. The game was awesome. The atmosphere was crazy and really fun. I was looking at the field thinking about playing out there. After the game we went into the locker room and met with some of the players. My player host was Manasseh Garner. He was real cool and we went to dinner and then we just chilled with some other players. It was a really nice time."

Jordan says he is hoping to commit next month and is planning on doing so after his official visit to Michigan. He says he may make it to an Illinois game but he feels Illinois is relatively far behind his two favorites: Wisconsin and Michigan. He still thinks his final choice will be between the Badgers and the Wolverines. In the meantime, Jordan says he will focus on his game so he can keep improving and capitalizing on the tools he has.

"I will just do everything I've been doing. I want to help my team and make more plays. This year will be fun out there."
