West Virginia has offered 6’5” wide receiver Jalen Jordan from the IMG Academy in Bradenton, Florida. The Mountaineers are not the only school calling, however. He has a total of 10 offers, including Georgia Tech, Georgia, Tennessee, and UCLA.
Wider receivers coach Tyron Carrier could take advantage of Jordan’s size with his commitment that West Virginia has been missing on the outside the last couple years. Jordan says him and Coach Carrier “have a good relationship.”
Jalen is fast and can stretch the field with his 4.5 speed. But just as important, Jordan knows how to use his size and his body to block the defensive back, whether it’s on a slant or a go route down the sideline and attacking the ball.
With offensive coordinator Jake Spavital calling the plays from Dana’s blueprint, Jalen has taken notice. “I love the offense, it fits me perfectly. They throw the ball a lot. I play they X,Y and Z, so they can move me all over the field.”
The receiver has noticed the program is on the rise and is “definitely a conference contender right now.” “WVU seems to be committed to developing their program,” Jordan added. “That’s why I’m so eager to get to Morgantown for a visit. I’m sure in the near future WVU will be contending for a playoff spot. Great staff and great fans!”
He doesn’t have a visit planned but is working it out. His Sister, Jala Jordan, was in for a visit during the Delaware State game as a standout women’s basketball recruit. They are not necessarily looking to go to the same school, but that would be unique if it did work out.
Remember the name Jalen Jordan as he would be a great addition to the 2018 class.
