Scout.com had a chance to sit down and chat with Arizona junior Dion Jordan, a Scout.com Top 100 player from Chandler HS. We discussed his latest offers, updates in his top schools, summer plans and how track went. Here are the contents of that discussion:
Scout.com: So how is recruiting going, any new
Jordan: "Nebraska is the only one."
Jordan now holds offers from Nebraska, Boise State, Utah, Michigan, San Jose State, San Diego State, Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Oregon State and Washington State. In a recent interview with Scout.com Jordan named a top six ofArizona, Arizona State, Oregon, Oregon State, Michigan and Boise State in no particular order.
So with the Nebraska offer does that change your top
"It's still the same. I still have a lot to figure out."
It has been well documented that the Cornhuskers had a lot of success in Arizona last year, landing six players. We asked Dion if he was suprised with the number of kids headed to NU. His response, "Yes, I was surprised. I know they got the kid from Trevor Browne (Marcel Jones) and the other guys."
When asked if he would consider a trip to Lincoln to see why all of them are headed that way he adds, "Yes, I would need to talk to my Aunt." He continues, "I don't know too much about them. I just know how big football is and the tradition they have."
Jordan plays mainly WR for Chandler but at 6'6 210 pounds, it is possible that he could move to TE or DE. He says that most schools are recruiting him as an athlete, although he has expressed interest in playing wide receiver in past interviews. Last year he caught 54 balls for 804 yards and 13 TDs. He was named 1st team all region and all 5A by the Arizona Football Coaches Association.
Dion is also one of the state's top performers in the 110 and 300 meter hurdles. He has recorded personal best times of 14.24 and 38.26 in those events respectively and finished 2nd in the state in the 300 and 6th in the 110.
Jordan says he plans on taking some summer school after spring ball at Chandler. He adds that he is still undecided on where he will cmap this summer.
Here are clips of Jordan in two as a junior. The first is versus Highland HS (Gilbert, AZ), the second set of clips is versus Brophy Prep (Phoenix, AZ)
