Three-star wide receiver Jalen Jordan has offers from all over the country, but is strongly considering two SEC East programs, Georgia and Tennessee.

Jordan (6-feet-5, 210 pounds), originally from Alpharetta, Ga., in the Atlanta suburbs, now attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla.

“I love the atmosphere at Georgia,” Jordan told GN. “When I went there, I felt at home and really loved it there. I got former teammates that go there and players I played with on seven-on-seven that go there. It’s a real good place, and I’m excited to continue the recruiting process with them.”

He’s also planning to take a close look at Tennessee.

“I’m very excited with Tennessee and a lot of my teammates also like Tennessee,” he said. “We are all going to try and plan a official visit where we can all go up there together. I do want to visit there again because I had a great time the last time I was there. I really loved what I saw.”

But those aren’t the only schools he’s considering.

“As of right now, I guess I’m pretty even with a lot of my schools,” Jordan said. “I’m just waiting on being able to take visits and see how that turns out. I’m strongly considering Georgia, Georgia Tech, Tennessee, UCF, UCLA and others. I’m still very open in my recruitment.”

So, what type of wide receiver is Jordan?

“I’m a big-body wide receiver, and I’m strong and physical,” Jordan said. “I’m very fast and explosive. I have great hands and surprisingly really quick feet for someone of my height and weight. I would definitely describe myself as a vertical receiver.”

Jordan is still enjoying the recruiting process.

“I love everything about it and I’m definitely using up everything that I can to soak it all in,” he said.
