Scout was able to confirm those rumors as true, but the prospect isn't who most would think about at this time.
Already at 5-foot-10, 170 pounds with long arms and fluid hips, the class of 2016 talent is already turning heads at college camps, even in the SEC.
Jordan and a few others from the state checked out Vanderbilt over the weekend, excelling at camp. It was so dominant for him, despite the lack of depth at the position on campus, that James Franklin himself offered Jordan a scholarship.
"He started off by telling me how I did real good and how impressed he was with he saw today," said Jordan. "I'm supposed to come back for one of their games this coming season.
"I proved great footwork, I attacked the ball in the air at the highest point and all."
Offer No. 1 for the potentially elite cornerback was an early relief, though he says it's just a benchmark for the work ahead.
"It's a big feeling, but at the same time I have to keep working hard," he said. "I can't get a big head since I got an offer, I have to keep working hard."
"It felt good," he continued, with a laugh. "I thought if I did real good, I may get the offer.
"Now I know that I can go out to other schools, work my butt off, and get another one."
"Since it's the first offer, as I grow, I think I'm going to keep Vanderbilt in consideration," he said. "It was my first offer, and I really like the coaching staff. Coach Franklin is a great coach.
"I loved the way the campus is set up, it's by where all the tourist areas are at. And I like the way the fans show appreciation."
Jordan, who will play at the IMG 7-on-7 national championships over the weekend with the Tennessee Xpress, is planning on camping at LSU and Kentucky among others this summer.
