Here is my interview with Jordan….
CSZ - What or who was most influential factor in your decision to commit to Louisville back in June?
JT- The influential factor was all the coaches making me feel like I was at home on my visit.
CSZ – The Palm Beach Post reported that you will not enroll early. Is that simply just wanting to enjoy the rest of your senior year of high school? For the record, I would do the same thing.
JT - At the school I attend, we are not aloud to leave early.
CSZ – When Florida came aggressively at you, at the last minute, were you insulted that you became a priority late or did it make your decision harder?
JT - I was pretty insulted.
CSZ – Who is your favorite Artist and what is currently your most played song?

JT - Yes. I do think a hot dog is a sandwich
CSZ – Do you feel that the Petrino offense will be tough to learn? Or is it close to Coach Kresser’s?
