Three star running back Ty Jordan signs with Utah football

@UtahAthletics on Twitter

Here’s a dynamic playmaker that the Utes are bringing in out of Mesquite, Texas. The former Texas commit joins a talented room of running backs, and could prove to be quite the Swiss army knife for the Utes. He had offers from the likes of USC, Texas, Tennessee and others. His speed is the first thing that jumps out, and he’s not a big dude, at 5-7, but he’s pretty stout at 197 pounds. A guy like Ty Jordan is a really fun player to watch, because of that speed, he’s able to break a play at any given time of a game. It will be interesting to see how he slides in with the likes of Jordan Wilmore, Devonta’e Henry-Cole, Devin Brumfield and TJ Green.
