Jordan Hancock, the Ohio State-committed cornerback who opted out of his senior season in August, is rejoining his team at North Gwinnett. Hancock was a first-team all-region and all-Gwinnett County player in 2019. He gives North Gwinnett the two highest-rated defensive players in Class 7A, joining linebacker Barrett Carter, who is committed to Clemson. Steve Wifong of 247Sports was the first to report the news of Hancock’s return.
