Drafted in the 16th round (496th overall) by the Houston Astros in 2019 (signed for $90,000)
Jordan teamed with fellow draft prospect Joe Gray to lead Hattiesburg to the Mississippi 5A state championship this season with Jordan allowing one run in five innings to get the win while also providing three hits and three RBIs in the championship game. Jordan's pro future will be as a position player, although what position that will be is much less clear. Jordan can play second or third base and left or right field. His best positional fit is probably third base where he has an average arm and average range. Scouts love Jordan's mature makeup and intense on-field approach. Overall, there are a lot of average tools on Jordan's scouting report. He is an average runner with an average arm, average defense and potentially average power. Like it is for many high school hitters, the big question is whether his hit tool will also get to average. Some scouts think it will, which is why he could hear his name called on day two of the draft.
