COACH COLE ON JORDAN: "Despite only being a freshman, Jordan has some tangibles that make us excited for his future. He’s a very smooth, dynamic runner that has a lot of good racing ahead of him. But just like everyone in our program, his diligence in his preparation and recovery when he’s not running is what will enable the talent Jordan possesses to really shine over his running career. If he sticks with that process, Jordan can be very good."
