The three-star center is No. 10 in the Class of 2017 at his position, and is the No. 7 player in Washington, D.C. according to the 247 Sports Composite. When he committed on July 31, he was the No. 14 center in the country, and the No. 8 player in the District.
Along with quarterback Kasim Hill and defensive lineman Cam Spence, Jordan is one of three Maryland commits from D.C. They are three of the top eight players from the region, according to 247Sports.
He attended Gonzaga College High School, and competed against some of his future teammates in the WCAC. Jordan helped lead the Purple Eagles to an 8-2 record before falling to St. John’s in the WCAC semifinals, a team that featured Hill and Spence. He was also named First Team All-Met by the Washington Post.
The 6’1, 290-pound Jordan will back up Brendan Moore, who started every game at center for the Terps last season and is the only scholarship center on the roster. Barring a major injury, it’s unlikely that Jordan will see playing time this season.
