Welcome to the Fold, Jordan Shine

New, comments

Warren Central safety Jordan Shine wasted no time accepting his offer and becoming the first commitment for the class of 2012.

It took Shine ( 6'0/185 lbs) only about an hour to decide that he wanted to be a Boilermaker. And after viewing his highlight video, I feel pretty good about this pickup.

The video demonstrates that Shine has a solid nose for the ball and can deliver a hit like...uh...a safety...which works out well considering that's his likely position. He also has a good back-peddle and a year to continue to develop in one of the better systems in the state.

We are still gathering information, but according to Max Prep, Shine averaged 8.8 tackles a game to help WC finish with a 8-2 record. (Take Max Prep stats with a grain of salt - not all the numbers add up.) He also earned MIC Fall All-Conference honors last fall, an honor nominated by the coaching staff.

We'll have more on in-depth information as it becomes available or as my googling skills enhance.

But welcome to the fold, Jordan. Not a bad start to the weekend.

Here's to hoping that more members of the 2012 class just as eager to become a Boilermaker as Shine is!

Note: Insert Shine pun here. I felt like I needed at least one, but nothing I came up with satisfied me.
