Southern Miss lands JUCO All-American
With the success that wide receiver Deandre Brown had on the field as a freshman at Southern Miss, the Golden Eagles have been scouring the country looking for a talented wide receiver to complement him in the passing game. On Sunday night, they found that complement.
Four-star junior college prospect Justin Jordan was on campus in Hattiesburg this weekend for an official visit. The elite wide receiver was previously committed to UAB but while on his official visit, Jordan decided to make the switch.
"I committed last night," Jordan said on Monday. "The visit went pretty well. I liked everything. I went in looking for something wrong and I couldn't find anything wrong about it."
Southern Miss was supposed to be Jordan's second to last official visit with a visit to Iowa State set up next weekend but now it looks as though that will not take place. Southern Miss separated itself because of a winning attitude.
"They seem more real," he said of Southern Miss. "They seem like they share the same compassion for winning that I do. I like to win and I feel like they have the capabilities for winning. Coach Wyatt, he shares the same passion for the game that I do. I like to win. I won at Plano. I won at Blinn and I want to win at Southern Miss."
Jordan is more of a slot wide receiver than the big outside presence of Deandre Brown and he earned All-American honors at Blinn while hauling in over 15 touchdown receptions.
"I feel like I will be an immediate impact," he said. "I saw how well [Brown] did and I could be a good complement on the other side."
