Jordan graduated from St Peters College in Auckland, playing for the Blues Under-18 squad in 2014.  He was a Sir Edmund Hillary Scholarship winner, moving to Waikato University where he was called into the Waikato side for their Ranfurly Shield win over Hawkes Bay in 2015, and the Waikato U19 side that finished second in the national tournament.

He earned a call-up to the Blues WTG in 2016 and the NZ Under 20s, with both campaigns thwarted by injury. He has played at fullback for Waikato in the Mitre 10 Cup, and rejoins the Blues as a utility back at fullback or wing. While smallish in stature, he has outstanding skills, fast, elusive and an excellent kicker.
