SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Utah running back Ty Jordan was named a Freshman All-American by 247Sports after a tremendous 2020 season.

Ty Jordan rushed for 597 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns in his first season for the Utes that led to him being named a Freshman All-American.

Jordan is one of two players in the Pac-12 to be named a Freshman All-American by 247Sports, joining former Orem star and current Oregon linebacker Noah Sewell.
