The former All-SoCon defensive lineman joins an Alabama State team entering its first season under head coach Eddie Robinson Jr.
The Alabama State Hornets have added one of the top defensive linemen from the Southern Conference to their unit as former Samford recruit Nelson Jordan II has committed to play in Montgomery. Jordan comes to Alabama State with one year of eligibility remaining.
The Starkville, Mississippi native joined the Samford Bulldogs as a member of the 2017 high school recruiting class.
After redshirting his true freshman season, Jordan made an immediate impact for Samford in 2018 recording 33 tackles, 8.0 tackles for loss, and 5.0 sacks. He was named to the Hero Sports Freshman All-American team and the SoCon All-Freshman team.
