Jordan Louie out of Meadowcreek is quickly becoming one of the hottest names in recruiting circles around the state of Georgia. The senior who is committed to West Virginia has started off his season with 1000 yards rushing and 10 touchdowns thru 6 games.
“My senior year is going great. I’m loving the performances I’m having,” Louie said about his excellent start to the season.
The dynamic back has made some marvelous runs all season, but last week’s jaunt against North Gwinnett easily takes the cake, and quite honestly, it was one of the best runs we have seen in the state over several years.
The 2023 running back out of Meadowcreek took a handoff at his own 25-yard line and went buzzing down the left sideline. With two North Gwinnett defenders closing in, Louie stepped back, leaving the defender lost in the sauce. He then reversed field, breaking several tackles in the process, and then followed his blocking down the right sideline into the endzone for a 70-yard score.
The 2023 running back ended up with 302 yards of total offense on the night and two touchdowns. The performance has caught the attention of college scouts far and near, and without a doubt, Louie is seeing his recruitment heat up.
“I’m handling recruiting pretty well; just enjoying it while I still have it. This weekend I will be at UGA and the next I’m supposed to go to Florida State,” the senior said.
If you follow the Meadowcreek program at all, then you would know the staff has vehemently stated over and over that Louie is the best running back in Georgia. When you see runs like last week, it’s hard to argue against it, and we suspect that his recruitment is about to reach a new level in terms of college interest.
For some, Louie is a bit of a surprise player here in the state. He moved over from Alabama’s Paul W. Bryant high school where he played along with Meadowcreek’s senior QB Cameron Ellis during the first three years of high school before making their way over to Meadowcreek. That’s where the 6′ 210 lbs. back first popped on our radar, especially seeing him make ridiculous dunks at his height.
Louie’s explosiveness is effortless, but that is no accident, becoming more dynamic was a point of emphasis during the offseason.
“I’ve improved the most with my speed and being able to change directions quicker,” he said.
Meadowcreek was our ‘Underdog’ pick in 7A this year where we expected them to make the jump as a winning team and earn a spot into the 7A playoffs. So far, the Mustangs are 4-2 on the year and are in terrific shape with a 1-1 record in region play. The odds are definitely in their favor to play in November for the ‘2nd season’ or what many call the GHSA playoffs where the cream rises to the top.
That will certainly be an interesting test for the Mustangs and their star back Louie. On the recruiting side of things, Louie is quickly making a statement that he is the top running back in the state, and that should only continue to attract P5 programs, which should lead to an interesting recruiting battle for WVU going up against the southeast’s biggest college football powerhouses.
A lot can transpire in the upcoming months, so be sure to stop by @RecruitGeorgia on Twitter to see the latest on Louie and athletes all across the state of Georgia.
