On Monday afternoon, Miami Hurricanes TE Brevin Jordan was named a semifinalist for the Mackey Award.

Given annually to the best TE in the nation, the Mackey Award is the premier award for a TE at the college level. A sophomore from Las Vegas, NV, Jordan has quickly and repeatedly proven his elite level of talent and skill at the college level in just under 2 full seasons of play.

Here’s more on this nomination from Miami Athletics:

CORAL GABLES, Fla. – University of Miami sophomore Brevin Jordan was selected as one of eight semifinalists for the 2019 John Mackey Award honoring the nation’s top tight end, it was announced Monday.
