Jordan was gracious enough to take a break from preparing for the upcoming NFL Draft and did an interview for us here at Stripe Hype.

So you started at Hofstra, but they ended their program. Tell us what that situation was like and how you ended up at Towson.

"When we were told that Hofstra was canceling their program it all seemed so unreal to me. It happened so fast and came out of nowhere. I would never wish that scenario upon anybody, especially for a freshman like I was. I thought football was over for me. A few days after the bad news, it was like the recruiting process all over again.  Teams came rolling in offering scholarships to some of my teammates and me.Towsonwas the one moving the fastest with me during the process and talking the most business.  I set my visit up with them and fell in love with town and campus.  Also, starting right away was a real possibility and I wanted to be a part of a program I knew was on the rise."

You chose Reliance Sports Management for your agency. Tell us, how do you go through the agent selection process once your senior season ends.

"It is a very hard and stressful process.  As soon as my season ended, agents were immediately in contact with me. Some agents were in contact way before the season ended, but I was focused on my senior year and I wanted no distractions. After the season, you just get to know the agents and try to get a good feel for them.  Ask every question and any question you want to know about them or what they have to offer to help in your career.  Reliance Sports Management has a great background getting guys in the NFL and is known for working with small school prospects like myself.  I feel real comfortable with them and we are on the same page. It is just like teamwork."
