Four-star edge Jordan Renaud of Tyler (TX) Legacy High is down to two schools– Alabama and Oklahoma.
The 6-foot-4, 250 pounder will announce his college decision on September 19th.
Renaud went in-depth on his finalists.
“I feel that Alabama has always been a perennial powerhouse,” Renaud said. “As far as development goes, they have some of the best development in the country. Me and coach Roach have a great relationship. When I went on my visit there, it was very eye opening to what Alabama really is, and what they do for their players.”
“With Oklahoma, I feel like they have a chance to be the next Alabama, or starting something new under coach Venables,” Renaud said. “I was recruited to Alabama by coach Valai, who is now at Oklahoma, so it was a seamless transition when it came to that part. With the coaching staff, it is a lot of family oriented stuff, and I felt the love early. They prioritized me early in my recruitment and made me feel like they really want me.”
Jordan Renaud Scouting Summary
“Tenacious run stopper who plays the game with his hair on fire,” On3’s Director of Scouting Charles Power wrote. “Long arms allow him to keep his chest clean against the run consistently. Flashes raw power as a pass rusher with his bull rush and snatch-pull. Has some heavy footedness but shows hip fluidity and balance to compensate. The body control and leverage stems from this hip looseness. High motor player that always pursues to the ball carrier from the backside. Needs to add mass throughout his frame in order to effectively kick inside at the next level. Can also stand to improve his production as a senior.”
Renaud ranks as the No. 92 player in the On3 Consensus, a complete and equally weighted industry-generated average that accounts for all four major recruiting sites. He also tabs in as the No. 13 edge and the No. 16 player in the state of Texas.
