A weekend in South Florida won’t be Brevin Jordan‘s last taste of Miami before he joins the team during the summer. The senior already has laid out a plan with Todd Hartley for how he and fellow 4-star tight end Will Mallory will get themselves ready to be contributors to the Hurricanes as freshmen.
On Wednesday, both Jordan and Mallory will sign their national letters of intent during the first day of the early signing period. At a date still to be determined shortly down the road, Jordan and Mallory will be back in touch with their future tight ends coach for a remote study session.
“We’re going to have a date where we FaceTime and go over the playbook with Coach Hartley,” Jordan told DieHards on Sunday. “They’re going to get us in shape and stuff — we have so much time off — but the main thing is just getting the playbook down, learning the system. If you’re comfortable, you can just play football.”
Jordan is back in Las Vegas after a massive official visit weekend, which served a pair of purposes for Miami’s Class of 2018. The future Hurricanes had a chance to meet with their soon-to-be coaches, laying out visions for their futures near and far.
It was also a rare opportunity to get nearly all of the incoming class together in Coral Gables, Fla., at the same time before they become teammates during the fall.
The latter part is what stood out most to Jordan. The 4-star tight end is one of the few commits in the class who isn’t from the Miami metropolitan area and part of an even smaller group with no significant ties to Florida. The athlete, who also played some outside linebacker for Vegas’ Bishop Gorman High School, only got to one game this season, so it was one of the first chances in awhile he was actually getting face to face with some of his future classmates.
“I’ve kicked it with these dudes before,” Jordan said. “I know South Florida and what they’re about, so it wasn’t a like shock to be around them so much. Just being around them, you get their vibe, you know how they are, you know the slang they say. I was just kicking with them.”
Jordan’s position group is one of the few for the Hurricanes which doesn’t include any early enrollees. Neither Jordan nor Mallory are allowed by their high schools to graduate early. The chance to get to know some of their teammates by spending a weekend together was the priority.
“The whole point of this official was really just to bond all the commits,” Jordan said. “Being out there, you could tell everybody was being more comfortable being around each other. We was just partying and being goofballs with each other.”
During Jordan’s visit, he officially announced his intention to sign with Miami during the first day of the early signing period.
I’ve decided, to sign my National Letter of Intent to the University of Miami on December 20th. #Trust

Jordan said this didn’t have anything to do with the visit. The decision simply came down to his school allowing him to set something up. The pass catcher has been locked in for a while, and now he’s ready to make it official.
“I know I’m going to Miami,” Jordan said. “The main reason I wasn’t going to sign is because I didn’t think my high school was doing a ceremony, but now they are. Why not get it out of the way.”
