NORFOLK Va.- It comes full circle for the Bly family, as former NFL All-Pro cornerback and College Football Hall of Famer Dré Bly’s son, Jordan, committed to Old Dominion University (ODU) on Aug. 5.
Dré is from Chesapeake (11 minutes from Norfolk) and went to Western Branch High School before playing three seasons at UNC in the 1990s.
Jordan had offers from Florida International, Pittsburgh and UNC-Charlotte but ultimately decided to go to ODU.
Jordan is listed as a three-star wide receiver by 247sports.com. In his junior season with the Myers Park Mustangs in Charlotte, N.C., Jordan racked up 501 yards receiving yards and seven touchdowns en route to a 12-1 record.
The Monarchs are looking to bounce back under new head coach Ricky Rahne after going 1-11 with Bobby Wilder last season, the same coach who led the team to the school’s only bowl game win in the 2016 Bahamas Bowl.
