Gordon favors two

Aaron Gordon is ranked as the third best prospect in 2013 and now it seems his recruitment is starting to take shape. Read on to see which schools he favors, when he will make a decision, and more.

2013 forward Aaron Gordon was recently ranked as the third best player in the country and rightfully so considering how he has been performing.

The 6-foot-7, 205-pound San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty forward is going to have his choice of schools to attend and, at this point, it appears that two schools stick out.

"I would say that Arizona and Washington are my two top schools right now," Gordon said. "Washington is a little bit on top of Arizona because of my relationship with Lorenzo Romar."

Gordon was quick to answer what he liked about both schools, as Arizona and Washington appeal to him for similar reasons.

"I get along well with both schools' coaching staffs," he said. "Also, I like the tempo of both offenses and the way they play."

The Oakland Soldiers started Peach Jam play with two wins and Gordon is happy with his performance so far.

The Soldiers are still missing 2014 forward Stanley Johnson due to a hand injury, but Gordon is confident in his team's ability.

"We are doing great out here," he said. "We are nine guys deep. We would like to have Stanley, but we have other people that can step up."

Arizona recently picked up a commitment from 2012 guard Gabe York and while Gordon knows York, it likely will not play a role in his decision.

"I know Gabe a little bit," Gordon said. "It does not really matter to me who a school gets. It is more about the school and the coaches for me."

With Gordon having two favorites, it still appears that he will take his time with a final decision.

"I am probably going to take my five official visits before I feel comfortable making a final decision and committing," he said.
