Eric Jordan, a quick if undersized tailback, reports eight current scholarship offers

Every college prospect handles recruiting a little bit differently. For instance, Eric Jordan, a 5-foot-8, 155-pound class of 2006 tailback prospect at Las Vegas High School, is not particularly concerned with what schools are showing interest in him at the moment and has not determined a list of favorites.

In a telephone interview this week, Jordan had to ask his father what schools have offered him a scholarship because Jordan himself had little recollection of what constituted his eight scholarship offers.

After some discussion with his father, Jordan said that he has standing scholarship offers from San Diego State, Oregon State, New Mexico, UNLV, Utah, Fresno State, Colorado State and Nevada.

In two previous interviews, Jordan said that he had an offer from the University of Wisconsin. But this week he clarified, saying that an offer from the Badgers has not technically arrived.

"People were saying (Wisconsin would offer), but they never told us that," Jordan said.

Last month Jordan received phone calls from Colorado State, Oregon State, San Diego State and Fresno State.

When Jordan spoke to this week he was at a UNLV football camp. He also has tentative plans to attend camps at Colorado State, Colorado, Fresno State and San Diego State.

As for favorites, Jordan said, "They are all in the same ranking right now."

Despite being on the small side for a running back, Jordan is a well put together athlete who rushed for 2,772 yards and 37 touchdowns as a junior last fall. As more colleges get to know him, expect his offer sheet to swell.
