Bio: 

Jordan is one of the premier athletes in the Suburban One League, but a few things have held him back from what should be a Division 1 offer. Jordan has had some injuries in his past. His health has cleared up now, but his height has some recruiters wary. Trust me, though, these schools should have 0 to worry about at all. Collazo is a kid who gives 100% on every play to make sure the job gets done. Being double-teamed on nearly every play, Jordan is still able to get into the backfield with ease.

Running the ball is also an impressive part of Jordan’s play as he rushed for over 10 yards per carry his junior year. He makes cuts with ease and can find the smallest of holes to break for a touchdown. Collazo’s deadly combo of speed and strength should be enough to have at least one D1 program offering him, but Jordan is still awaiting his first offer that he hopes is coming soon. 

Jordan Collazo sat down with The Painted Lines as part of our PA Top Football Recruits series.
