A kid who never set foot on campus.
Actually to be fair - we did have Melvin Gordon & Trae Wayans on campus (unofficially) and Marrone kind of blew them both off. I believe it was after the... Cincy game in '09? Might have been in 2010. Can't remember the exact details but Melvin and Trae both really liked the campus and who knows what may have been

Which people would stop with Marrone, should have a Rutgers style thread, for everything on Doug.
It will never stop. The second the words "Dream Job" came out of his mouth - he was doomed because it created the perception of him wanting to be the football equivalent of JB.

I had some disgust with both his 2013 class recruiting effort and the way in which he left because I felt it put the program back a few years, but I'm over it now.

If this kid has the speed it appears you don't RS him and just let him help next year. Plus if he special he isn't staying 4 years so use him.

With our backfield depth and his YAC potential, does he start off as a slot receiver?

My theory too. At 160-170, he's not going to break through at RB. He'll operate in space, which tells me 'slot', KOR, maybe WR for a deep shot - the same way WF used Dortch, UNC uses Newsome and WMU uses Eskridge.

I'd like to see him used like how Purdue uses Rondale Moore. Sweeps, quick routes, get him the ball in space and let him work.

Good thought. I agree that we should give him some carries and try to get him into space using quick tosses, options, etc. He has cutting ability that you don't see that often. I'd love to see him going off tackle or on a Jet Sweep.

This is what I expect, too -- an "upgraded" version of Erv Philips, in terms of speed / elusiveness.

Not a knock on Erv, who I thought was terrific. Pure speed was the one thing he lacked, whereas Jordan looks like a home run threat.

While that makes sense, the same could have been (and was, repeatedly) said about Moe Neal.
We're pretty deep there too.

Just want to see this kid get some snaps, anywhere on O - he's a gamebreaker.
(ok, not at TE or O-Line, for any of the pedants out there).
I agree! I just want to see him on the field. He has a very impressive skill set.

I saw him in the slot from the beginning.
Jawhar Jordan, so glad he's here. Worked his magic in the classroom and he's here.

For those who did not see my earlier posts in 2017, here is one that is appropriate. Currently 5’11” – 168, needs to add weight and muscle. Here is the most important information for you. It is from an April 8, 2017 article and interview from RNG recruiting written by Ryan Wright interviewing Jawhar:

Your recruiting has taken off since you won the fastest man competition at the Los Angeles Nike Opening Regional.





What was the time you posted in that race at the Opening?
“4.37.”
Was that the fastest 40-yard dash you have ever ran?
“No, I ran that at school too.”
Are you running track this season?
“No. I’m not competing in track. I’m focused on getting bigger this off-season.”
What are you working on this off-season?
“Building my strength, getting my weight up, and building chemistry with team for a great season.”//

2019:
My guess is that Jawhar has already met with all the coaches and especially Sean Edinger who has given the “Jet” a S&C program with diet. The muscle and weight program are seeds now but Sean will be be growing and building Mr. Jordan to where they want him to be. I have no idea what position HCDB has in mind for him but wherever it is this young man from Long Island, NY and Chandler AZ is one of the fastest backs we've ever had and IMO going to be one of the best backs we have ever had. Here are the final stats as a senior at Hamilton HS in Chandler AZ for those who are new or missed this. Posted December 24, 2017:
