Jordan just walked in our house with my middle son to grab a bit to eat before they go work out with two different trainers this afternoon. Spend yesterday afternoon working first with Marcus Pugh, who use ro be a track star at OU as a Sprinter and another track coach who is also working with them and put them through a couple hours workout.
Jordon looked taller and he said that he grown another inch. He is now 6'3".

How would you rate his initial quickness off the line and what will he run the 40 in? Will he run the 100m? Sub 11.00 would indicate good speed.
He won't play immediately, but he has a chance to be a good one before its all said and done. A couple of years with Norvell will do wonders for him.

This just seems like an OU guy. Hard worker, passionate about maximizing his skill set etc.... Wouldn't surprise me if he played as a Fr. He'll be more physically ready than Metoyer.

With everything that has been written about Jordan, he has come a long way. When he was in the 9th grade, he would run against my middle son, and my son would beat him in approx. 50-60 yards races here on our street and on the football field up at school, by at least 7-8 yards. Jordan had decent speed back than, but not great. Jordon and my son have been best friend since the ninth grade and it was all in good fun.
It was and is his desire, dedication, drive and hardwork that has made everything possible. And a little luck, even to a point of send the OU coaches film developed by his dad, that caught their eye. And of course it was his excellent camp early last summer that got his OU offer against very good DBs at the camp.
In the last couple of years, Jordan has improved his speed to the point, that his best time in the 40 is 4.47. Not sure what his best 100 Meter time is, but will know this week.
Jordan will run the High and low 110 Hurdles, the 200 and 4x200 Relays this Spring. My Son will run the 100, 200, anchor the 4x100 and 4x200 this Spring. There a number of very good athletes on the Jenks Track team and they hope to do well in State.
Of course, as I have always said, you have to take the journey first to hopefully get there and reach your goals.

Thanks for the "inside" info!!
Keep us in the Loop in the future!
Great information, OKC. Much appreciated.
I love to read posts like yours, OKCSooner. Please keep the reports coming. Recruits like Jordan Smallwood who grew up in Oklahoma are a big plus for the Sooners. I have long wondered why the OU coaches don't recruit the state more forcefully. I'm convinced that we have high school and JUCO players in Oklahoma who have the ability to play for the Sooners. Maybe the grass looks greener on the other side of the state boundary lines.
Perhaps Avid, one of the problems is if our recruiting rankings are not what some expect they start a lynch mob and go after the coaches.
thanks for the info Okc, can't wait until he's starting for the sooners!
