Accolades: 2018 Second-team All-MWC
History: Three-star recruit from Bakersfield, CA. Attended Liberty HS, where he also played basketball.
Strengths: Great size, tall and well built. Looks the part. Above average athlete, who can buy time/extend the play with his legs. Tough runner when he pulls it. Can make all the throws. Good zip when he really lets it go. Shows signs of really great ball placement.
Weaknesses: Has some questionable decision making in 2019. Didn’t always go through his progressions, dropped his eyes too quickly, and his internal clock was off. Part of the blame can obviously be that he didn’t have the same talent around him.
Overview: You don’t even have to watch the tape to compare the 2019 vs the 2018 seasons for Jordan Love. The numbers alone tell you that his redshirt junior season wasn’t as great. But if you want to see who the real Jordan Love is, or at least what he can be, I recommend watching the 2018. Love will need to sit and learn before he can be counted on moving forward. His best destination would be a team with a veteran QB room.
