Jordan ranks as the No. 21 outside linebacker in the 2022 class and cracks the Top 300 nationally, coming in at No. 264. He narrowed down his list to five programs after receiving 17 offers on the recruiting front.
According to 247Sports, Jordan had a huge season at Clearwater Central Catholic in 2018, totaling 74 stops, 10.5 tackles for loss, 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and an interception. He also rushed for 142 yards on the offensive side of the ball.
In 2019, Jordan attended IMG Academy and made 29 tackles and intercepted 2 passes.
Minnesota currently has one player committed in the 2022 recruiting class, 4-star strong-side defensive end Trey Bixby out of Lakewood, Ohio. Indiana currently has zero pledges in the cycle.
