Electric APB Ty Jordan names Texas in top group

The Longhorns remain in the mix for the explosive ball carrier.

West Mesquite’s Ty Jordan is considered to be the second best instate all-purpose back, per the 247Sports Composite, and as of Monday, only 11 programs are still standing in his recruitment.

The Texas Longhorns are among that bunch, alongside Arkansas, Baylor, Houston, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Oregon, Tennessee, USC, Utah, and Wisconsin.

Jordan received an offer from Tom Herman and company last July and presumes as one of the top targets for the Horns at the position. Texas currently holds all three of Jordan’s Crystal Ball predictions and his personal relationship with the staff is a huge indication why the Longhorns have a great chance at possibly landing him.

“The love. It feels like a family. They’re always hitting me, letting me know I’m in their prayers,” Jordan said of what about Texas stands out to him. “When they talk to me, it’s more than just recruitment, it’s ‘how are you doing’ or how’s school’ or ‘how are your people doing?’ It’s personal.”

Jordan visited the Forty Acres earlier this offseason for Junior Day.

A tremendous talent with the ball in his hands, what the 5’7, 181-pound Jordan lacks in ideal size, he accounts for with elite explosiveness, speed, and playmaking ability. The four-star prospect would ultimately be utilized all over the field as an offensive weapon and return specialist if he was to join the Longhorn program and add a great deal of versatility.

Ranked as the nation’s No. 361 player and No. 7 all-purpose back, per the 247Sports Composite, Jordan is aiming to announce his commitment during the fall.
