Terrell Jordan is a player whose performance transcends his physical dimensions. He is just a football player and there is always room at the table for a guy who can play the game.Fletcher W. Long, Senior Scout and Editorial Board Member for KPGFootball
Terrell Jordan, Class of ’23, isn’t tall. Let’s just go ahead and get that out of the way.
Incidentally, he had zero control over that particular number, his height. Now his 3.4 GPA, his 260-pound bench press, his 375-pound squat and his 4.5-second, 40-yard dash are all numbers he worked hard to attain and establish. His height…well, it is what it is.
However, we have an agent in Louisville, Kentucky who had a very profound thing to say one time to a scout who wanted to know the height of a particular prospect from the Derby City. His answer…, “I don’t know, how tall is a 4.5-second 40 (yard dash)?”
That is a good point. Speed thrills and kills on a football field.
Anyone doubting this prospect’s legitimate speed need only watch the provided “Highlights” in red below the prospect’s image. We have linked you to the evidence. We rest our case.
This is a prospect we could see playing quite a bit of RB this coming Fall for Ashland-Blazer. He is explosive, he is fast, and he is “twitchy.”
He is hard to tackle. Heck, behind his offensive line, he is hard to find.
Last year as a junior, the Tomcats worked diligently on getting the ball in Jordan’s hands in space. If you give him an inch, he’ll take a mile.
Jordan had 20-receptions as a junior for 381-yards and 5-TDs. He played corner on defense, was among the defensive leaders in passes broken up and interceptions.
We believe he may end up the Tomcats’ feature ball carrier this coming season. Vinnie Palladino was the leading rusher in ’21, gaining close to 1,200-yards and scoring 15-rushing TDs, but he has exhausted his eligibility. Brent Mullins, the second leading rusher a year ago, is also out of eligibility. The job is wide open for the taking.
Will the diminutive Jordan fill those shoes? We wouldn’t bet against him.
So far, counting him out, especially because of his perceived lack of height, hasn’t worked out very well for anyone.
