Ayala High School running back Jordan Charles has committed to and will sign with the University of San Diego on Wednesday.
Charles’ second choice was Dartmouth. He was also considering Harvard and Brown. The Ivy League education was appealing but he opted to stay closer to home.
“They have a good business school and that’s what I am interested in,” Charles said. “It’s also close enough my family and friends can come see me play.”
Charles has been the top offensive player for the Bulldogs the last two years. This season he rushed for 1,017 yards on 176 carries with six games of 100 or more yards despite injuries to both ankles that slowed him.
In 2014 as a junior he ran for 1,012 yards with four games of 100 yards or more.
