Jordan was a gold glove catcher in the CCCBCA while he was at Citrus College, a junior college in California. He was also a 2nd team All-Western State Conference-East selection hitting .297 in college. He threw out 19 runners, while sporting a .982 fielding percentage behind the dish. When he was at Providence Christian College he hit .303. He also had another phenomenal defensive season having a .978 fielding percentage while throwing out 13 runners. He was a 3 year starter in high school, winning the teams defensive MVP his last two seasons. He is in his Junior season at NAIA powerhouse Hope International University where he expects to get starting time behind the plate.
“Jordan is a great talent behind the plate. He has a great arm and pop time. I’m going to give him quite a bit of freedom calling pitches and managing the pitchers when he catches. He will be a big boost in controlling the run game. I think he’s had a great career so far, and I think he still has great baseball ahead of him. He’s a hard worker and great young man. He’ll be a great guy to have around this summer. I’m excited to coach him.” – Coach Keeran
