COACH CORBIN QUOTE - Jordan is one of the better athletes on the team. His ceiling as a student and as a baseball player in this program is quite high. He undoubtedly will help us on the mound very early in his career. His arm strength and overall pitching tools are not common for a young man. He is exciting to watch when he is on the field.
