D.J. Jordan profile
"I have been to Memphis, Southern Miss, Arkansas State and I plan on going to Ole Miss," said D.J. "I went to the 7-on-7 at Mississippi State. We lost in the semi-finals to Louisville. We had to beat them twice. We bit them the first time and then we came up a little short in the second game."
College recruiters appear to be intrigued by Jordan. He is getting interest from several schools and one school has already extended the opportunity to be a part of their program.
"I have an offer from Alcorn State," said D.J. "I think Arkansas State is close to offering. Southern Miss and (Mississippi) State both seem pretty interested. State seems to be a little concerned about my 40. I ran a 4.71 at MSU and then I ran a 4.65 at Memphis."
Jordan is in no hurry to make a commitment and he believes that a solid senior season will lead to more options for his college future.
The Jamie Mitchell era is set to begin this fall. D.J. and the rest of the Yellow Jackets are itching to get fall practice underway.
"Our attitudes are great," said D.J. "We are starting to get a feel for each other and learning to trust each other.
"Some people in the community are still kind of down us, but we're going to prove them wrong. They don't know what all is going on in the weight room and in our locker room."
In addition to being a more vocal leader, Jordan is doing his best to sharpen his skills in hopes of making his last prep season his best one.
"I am working on technique and on dropping back," said D.J. "I am trying to gain a little and weight and get my speed down."
In the end the talented linebacker is aware that his hard work will have to manifest it's self in the form of college scholarships if Jordan's Big Time football dreams are to come true.
"I have just been praying and everything," said D.J. "I don't feel like I have been exposed like I should have. I am going to some camps and sending my highlight tape out to try to fix that.
"I am just going to keep working hard and showing people what I can do. If they like me, hopefully they will offer me. I am going to keep working hard either way."
