Athletic Excellence


The 6-foot-2, 210-pound senior first baseman and third baseman is ranked as the nation’s No. 3 prospect in the Class of 2020 by Perfect Game and was a Rawlings-Perfect Game 2020 Preseason First Team All-American. He led the Jaguars to a 12-1 record before the 2020 season was canceled, batting .422 with six doubles, five triples, four RBI and 14 runs scored. A two-time First Team All-State selection, Jordan led DeSoto Central (34-3) to the Class 6A state championship in 2019, hitting .440 with 10 home runs and 46 RBI.

Academic Achievement


Jordan has maintained a 3.91 GPA in the classroom. He has signed a National Letter of Intent to play baseball on scholarship at Mississippi State University, but is projected as an early-round selection in June’s Major League Baseball draft.

Exemplary Character


A devoted member of his church community, Jordan has raised funds to benefit children’s hospitals and volunteered locally on behalf of youth baseball programs.
