Today’s stop on the prep football circuit was Claremont High School where I sat down with offensive lineman Jordan Austin. He’s headed to USC when he finishes up in high school.
Few are as on the ball as this young man. First, he spent much of the summer taking extra classes so he can graduate early and be enrolled in USC in January. He wants to major in criminology. He isn’t even enrolled yet and he’s talking about getting a Master’s so he has something to fall back on if a professional football career doesn’t pan out. He boasts a GPA of 4.3.
Wolfpack coach Mike Collins isn’t surprised.
“Not only will he get a Master’s, he’ll probably do it in four years,” the veteran coach said.
