The news of Ty Jordan will hit ALL OF US like a ton of bricks. In my 16 years I've never seen a freshman RB explode on the scene like him. I've never had coaches rave about a player's discipline & dedication like this young man. He was football perfection. He'll be sorely missed. pic.twitter.com/5D5oDtysYs
