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.

Here is what 247Sports said about Jordan.

“Jordan finished his freshman season with 597 yards and six touchdowns in just five games, averaging an eye-popping 7.2 yards per carry. The Pac-12 Freshman of the Year led all first-year players in average rushing yards per game.”
