Nation's #2 2018 TE Jordan talks Miami
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."
