Jordan Love of Liberty (Bakersfield) ended his recruiting chase on Monday, June 15, by committing to a football scholarship from Utah State.
Just one week ago, the Aggies out of the Mountain West Conference extended a scholarship pledge to the Patriot dual-threat signal caller. Love – who held five offers altogether – said he sees his himself sticking with the Aggies and doesn’t plan to find another school.
“I just know that after visiting there, USU is where I want to spend my next four to five years and I’m fully committed to USU,” Love said.
Love elevated himself into a running and throwing playmaker in Kern County last season. The Class of 2016 prospect threw for 1,930 yards and tossed 18 touchdown passes with 9 interceptions. He added 384 rushing yards and 5 scores through the ground game as Liberty finished 10-3 in 2014-15.
He’s the second Patriot from the Class of '16 to announce his commitment. Linebacker Krys Barnes made a verbal commit to UCLA in March 2015.
