Former Rutgers WR transferring to FCS program
A former Rutgers wide receiver has decided to transfer to Main, an FCS program.
Monday, former three-star wide receiver Jalen Jordan announced his commitment to Maine. He transferred from Rutgers after spending two seasons in Piscataway, appearing in four career games. He was a member of the Scarlet Knights’ 2018 recruiting class.
“First I want to thank the most high for giving me the ability and opportunity to play football,” Jordan wrote on Twitter. “I also want to thank my family for their support through this process. Also I would like to thank the Maine coaching staff for giving me the opportunity to continue playing college football. With all of this being said I am committed to Main University.”

Jordan, a native of Philadelphia, played in four games as a true freshman and was able to maintain his redshirt status. He did not record any statistics, according to his bio on ScarletKnights.com. Jordan did not participate in any games for Rutgers in the 2019 season.
Jordan was one of the top 650 players in the 2018 recruiting class, according to 247Sports.com. He attended IMG Academy and received offers from 10 programs, choosing Rutgers over Boston College, Cincinnati, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, UCF, Troy, UCLA and West Virginia.
When he arrives at Maine, Jordan will have three years of eligibility remaining.
