Texas Tech

Cibolo Steele safety Jordan Sterns committed in early March and is an intriguing prospect because I'm sure that he's a starter, but Sterns wasn't even close to be the best player on his high school team last year and isn't even the best safety on his high school team. And again, Texas Tech is either out incredibly early on a player as Sterns has no other offers.

Like some of the other commits, Sterns is rated as one of the top safeties in the state, but doesn't have any other offers (other than a possible offer from UTSA), which is just strange, and maybe its an indication that once Sterns committed, it was done, although I'd expect that Sterns will garner more offers as the year continues.

Stats

So there may not be much doubt to me that Sterns being offered and committing is largely based on potential. I don't think that Sterns' MaxPreps stats are correct in that he only had 2 tackles for the entire year last year (MaxPreps reports what the coaches turn in) and Sterns also only had 47 carries for 385 yards at 8.19 YPC average and 6 touchdowns last year. I would also point you to his profile where they maybe have a bit more information from last year where he had 59 carries, 500 yards and 7 touchdowns and on defense Sterns had 66 tackles last year (21 solo and 45 assisted) with 3 interceptions. So Sterns is very productive in limited action at running back and very productive at safety. I am curious as to where Sterns will line up for his senior year as he's probably productive at both spots.

The Player Speaks

LAJ's Don Williams writes about Sterns' commitment, but there's no quotes from Sterns. Maybe we'll get something later in the year.

Film and scouting report after the jump.

Scouting Report


Sterns is definitely not afraid of contact, but he needs to work on technique, especially at the safety spot in terms of tackling. Just not a lot of great form, but like I said, he likes to hit. I think I'd rather have a guy that isn't afraid of contact and is a good athlete, which Sterns is. Athletically, at safety, Sterns makes some really nice plays and goes up to get a couple of interceptions. At running back, Sterns has a really burst up the middle and is fast enough to out-run opponents, always a good quality. Of course, with Malcolm Brown on his Cibolo Steele team last year, the defenses may have been exhausted.

I couldn't find any other scouting report, but the OB.com' folks thinks that Sterns is one of the top 10 safeties in the state, but not on the top 100 list. I should also mention that there are two highly rated safeties on Cibolo Steele, Sterns and the more highly rated Erik Huhn and Texas Tech has also offered Huhn as have a lot of schools.

Jordan, welcome to Texas Tech and Git Your Guns Up!
