WELCOME! We look forward to seeing you in an OU football uniform!
I don't remember how many offers Broyles had...I know OSU offered him, but Sam Bradford,Brody Eldridge and Jeremy Beal come to mind as players that didn't have a ton of big time offers but were darn good players. Glad you chose the good guys Mr. Evans...now make the most of the opportunity!
I never get caught up on who has offered a player. I always remember Wes Welker wasn't even good enough to get an OU offer. After all, who would offer a 5-9, 185 pound white kid with a slow 40 time? Heart and desire are difficult to measure. Welcome aboard Jordan, we are thrilled to have you!
if he was a big time player as some have suggested, then his offer list would defin be a little better... but.. since OU offered, does that mean he is big time? or we just whiffed out on plan A.... players??
reminds me of Austin Box in how versatile he his with his size and speed. Hopefully hes even close to that good.
James, I know you can attest to this but recruiting has really changed over the years. I can remember when Scott Hill was the recruiting coordinator for Switzer and he always mentioned who else offered a player. OU routinely went against Texas, USC, Ohio St, Notre Dame, etc for the top players. And as we all know-they don't always pan out. Now with limited scholarships and more parity-you have to "hit" on the 3 star guys and hope they make an impact. Scott used to say you can measure size and speed but not the heart. Too many guys these days feel entitled and don't work to get any better or have bad work ethics to begin with. OU has missed on many lesser recruits that they wished they had gotten. But if a guy has athletic ability, loves the game, goes to class and works hard and stays out of trouble-more than likely he will have success. Jordan seems like one of those guys. I agree after having watching him that in a couple of years-he will make an impact at OU. I wish him the best.
Welcome young man...but let my mind wonder...Looked at as LB but mention of possible
DE with some weight gain probally. Dad (Scott DT) so is there even a bigger upside. Remember it was mentioned atheleticism. Yikes..
