A name like Lil’Jordan Humphrey automatically earns a spot on the all name team.
His older brother wanted to name him Michael after Michael Jordan and his mother made a compromise and named him Lil’Jordan.
Could this be the coolest name ever?
The only thing about his name is Lil’Jordan isn’t so little any more. Some have him listed as 6-5 and others as 6-4, but you get the picture that he grew pretty tall. He is pretty thin at around 195 and he is listed as an athlete and he was rated as the 38th best athlete.
That’s not a bad ranking when you consider that Christian McCaffrey was rated as the 26th best
Athlete in 2014.
The Athlete ranking just means that the rating service just doesn’t know where the guy will play in college.
Lil’Jordan Humphrey played Running Back at Southlake Carroll High School which is a traditional state power in the state of Texas. They have won numerous state championships in several different divisions in the state of Texas.
It’s pretty safe to assume that Humphrey is not going to play Running Back at Texas.
He will probably become a Wide Receiver in college.
Besides having one of the all time great names, Humphrey also is maybe one of the better team players I have ever heard of.
When asked what is his favorite thing about football, he answered ‘blocking’. Rare is the young football player with the talent to play a skill position that loves to block for his teammates. But, from everything I have seen and heard Humphrey is an outstanding kid.
According to everyone, you’d be hard pressed to find anyone that has anything negative to say about Lil’Jordan Humphrey.
Even though Jordan won’t play Running Back in college, he put up some good stats in high school.
During his senior year, Jordan ran for 1,828 yards and 29 Touchdowns. He also caught 26 passes for another 285 yards and 3 Touchdowns.
Longhorn fans would ask if Lil’Jordan Humphrey is going to play Wide Receiver who is going to throw the ball to him.
My guess would be fellow true freshman Shane Buechele. As an early enrollee in the spring semester, Buechele participated in Spring Drills and he looked fantastic. Buechele looks like a guy that has that ‘it’ factor.
Lil’Jordan Humphrey may play as a true freshman, or he may redshirt. Texas is suddenly pretty deep at Wide Receiver with John Burt, Armanti Foreman, Collin Johnson, Devin Duverney, Jacorey Warrick, Lorenzo Joe, DeAndre McNeil and Dorian Leonard.
At this moment, only one thing is for sure, Lil’Jordan Humphrey will immediately make the all name team.
