On Friday, 2020 West Mesquite running back Ty Jordan was among the many who flocked to the Forty Acres the Texas Longhorns Stars at Night camp, and the versatile prospect left Austin with an offer in hand, he announced on Twitter.
First and foremost I want to thank God for all of the people and coaches in my life and for the skills and ability to play football. With that being said I am proud to announce that I have received an offer from THE University of Texas ‼️ #AGTG pic.twitter.com/bnzoeingkJ— Ty Jordan (@_ylfotyt) July 28, 2018
With Texas being the latest to jump into the mix, Jordan is now up to 10 offers, with invitations stemming from Texas A&M, Houston, Illinois, and SMU, among others. Since announcing his Texas offer on Friday evening, two Crystal Ball projections have already been placed predicting that the four-star prospect will be a Longhorn.
Texas is still without a 2020 running back pledge, but the Longhorns have eight offers out, with Jordan becoming the third in-state prospect to earn an invitation from the ‘Horns, along with five-star Houston North Forest star Zachary Evans, and five-star Aledo product Jase McClellan, who’s currently committed to Oklahoma.
At 5’8, 180 pounds, Jordan is ranked as the nation’s No. 319 player and as the No. 32 running back, per the 247Sports Composite. As a sophomore, Jordan rushed for 759 yards and six touchdowns, and added another 158 yards and two scores as a receiver.
