Running back Chris Jordan has offers from schools all over the region, but he plans on taking a close look at one that's close to home.

At 6-2, 210-pounds, Jordan runs the 40-yard dash in 4.5 seconds and characterizes himself as a power back.

"That's pretty much my game," he went on to explain. "I'm a between the tackles type of runner and I get stronger as the game goes on. I wear on a defense and then the scat back comes in and busts one open."

Jordan, a four-star prospect and rated the No. 17 running back in the nation according to Scout.com, has plenty of offers to choose from.

"It's sort of hard to narrow it down because I have 12 offers," he said. "I haven't camped anywhere so I'll probably wait until the middle of the seeason before I narrow things down. I'll cut it down to five and then take my official visits.

"I've been to a few places, like Tennessee, Alabama, Vanderbilt and Ole Miss, but I need to see a little more. Just about all the schools looking at me have offered. I'm looking at those schools, plus a couple of others like Clemson and Georgia Tech. I can't really narrow it down right now."

Does Jordan have a serious interest level in Vanderbilt?

"Yeah, I definitely have some interest in Vanderbilt," said the rising senior from Brentwood Academy. "They had a coach come by our school, and a guy that played there came by too. Our team had a 7 on 7 passing tournament there, so I got to see a lot of the place. The campus is real nice."

Jordan spent time at Norcross High School in Georgia before returning to Nashville for his junior and senior seasons. Last year Jordan suffered a knee injury after the fourth game of the year, causing him to miss the remainder of his junior season. In four games last year he rushed for 487 yards and five scores. He figures to be 100-percent when Brentwood's practice begins.
