• Nation's #2 2018 TE Jordan talks Miami

    The Cast of the New JAMES BOND movie-img_0121-jpg


    As Miami is potentially looking to add a second tight end to their 2017 recruiting class, coach Todd Hartley is already working on dipping into West Coast powerhouse Bishop Gorman for the 2018 cycle.

    Brevin Jordan is the #2-ranked TE in the 247sports composite rankings for next year's class, and the Miami Hurricanes are heavily recruiting him.

    "I love Miami, theyr'e Tight End U and they send big, athletic tight ends like me to the league," Jordan said. "I'm fine going across the country. I'll move to Africa if it will get me to the league."

    Canes TE coach Todd Hartley is trying to secure what would be his biggest pick-up at Miami yet.

    "Coach Hartley and I have a great relationship. Out of all the schools recruiting me, I have the best relationship with him and he's the only coach in contact with my mom," he added.

    Jordan said that most of his family has warmed up to the idea of him possibly playing on the East Coast for college, but it's important that the Miami coaches continue to build that relationship with Jordan's mother, as he explains.

    "My family is all for it -- my brothers want me to move away from the West Coast and play ACC, SEC, OR BIG 10 football. My mom wants me to stay West Coast though because she's a sensitive mom," Jordan said.

    "I'm a big athletic TE I can do it all. Flex me out, put me at wide receiver, everything. I'm 6'3", 240 running a 4.68 40. I'm different."

    One area that could certainly work in Miami's favor in this instance is that Jordan really seems to have perspective as to the Hurricanes' lineage of professional tight ends.

    "Their history is pretty cool. I mean, look at the tradition of TEs going to the NFL -- I can definitely see myself being part of that tradition," Jordan said.

    "I'm making sure I'm playing in a pro-style offense where the TE is utilized heavily and gets the ball."

    "I'm taking my time with the recruiting process. I don't have to commit early until I know the 100% right decision. I keep my mind off of the process and I'm focused on leading my team to a 4-peat National Championship."

      Why are more national kids more bullish on Miami's trajectory than local kids? Boggles the mind.
      Because the local kids get purchased, and sold by their coaches. They use the "Miami is my lifelong dream" line to get a bigger bag, nothing more. They don't think about the future, but rather the here and now. It's sad, really.

      This kid is saying all the right things, and looks like he has a good head on his shoulders. He's looking down the road, not a bag tomorrow.

      I think most people miss out on the reality of our situation. Most of our real fan base is transplants therefore they have no loyalty. As a person from Miami through & through the options are limited. It's a strict (talking about regular academic students standards)academic school that's quite expensive even if you get help. We're even harder on locals when it comes to admissions. More opportunities are gave to foreign students etc. When that's the reality of the situation you limit your local loyalties from people especially when we haven't been winning.Miami is a town that thrives on what's hot at the moment. All those things combined mean parents or more likely a support base is gonna pressure that kid to go away. Fsu for instance is winning is relatively local & it & Floriduh are where are locals go because it's easy to get admitted there. I wish it was as simple as we're home town & that's that but you gotta look at the reality of the situation.

      I think South Florida's become a filthy street agent infested and competitive cesspool on an unprecedented level, unrivaled anywhere. I think the characters and personalities down there are driving the things we are seeing as Canes fans who follow recruiting closely with every major duffel bag school in our backyard big time. I think national kids can step outside the box we've been in locally a lot easier. This is just my theory. That's all.
      Wish we as south Florida locals could do something about the bag men.

      Lol. We just took a top 16 team to the woodshed with 5 freshman starters.on defense and improved from almost dead to top 15 in almost every category. Also ended the season on a nice streak. CMR and staff came In and won with little depth.

      Kids are flat out being bought. Sofla is as corrupt as it's ever been. Winning only does so much. Recruiting strategy needs to be adjusted. Juedy starts day one. Any top.DB in sofla starts day one. Any stud OL starts day one. But only we see this right? People are well aware of whats going on.

      Bet Notre Dame is one of our biggest competitors

      This long exhaustive paragraph has a lot of merit behind it. I don't live in Miami, but I usually vacation there once a year. It always pisses me off seeing the amount of Gaytor and Semenhole apparel sold at every store. I live in Pennsylvania. We don't have anything on the shelves up here other than Pedo State. It's a cult, just as it is in many other states (Alabama).

      The advantage we do have at Miami is local talent (not always loyal) and NFL teams that will almost always give a Hurricane an opportunity to make their roster. We need to make the street agents, handlers, and parents understand that Miami is the place to make that NFL bread. Richt's emphasis on speed will get skill position players drafted. TFL will get D-lineman drafted.
      Make Miami the IMG or Bishop Gorman of college football and the kids will come. How better to recruit a Bishop Gorman kid than to give him the best opportunity for success at the next level. I'm assuming that's why he is there in the first place.

      Perfectly written. It's so messed up in South Florida when you can't get those kids to fill obvious opportunities, it's time to go to places for talented kids who will.
