Visit to Arizona impresses Gordon

Five-star forward Aaron Gordon took an unofficial visit to Arizona this weekend. Read on to see how it went, where Arizona stands, and more.

6-foot-7, 205-pound forward Aaron Gordon is considered to be one of the top players in the class of 2013.

This past weekend, Arizona had an opportunity to impress the San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty forward and seemed to do just that.

"I was able to learn a lot about the school in general," explained Gordon. "I was able to see what Arizona had to offer and I think I got a good idea of that now."

With no football game on campus this weekend, Gordon was able to get a full glimpse of campus living and what it would be like as a student athlete.

"I saw the locker room, the practice gym, the dorm rooms and pretty much the whole campus," said Gordon. "It is a beautiful place. I didn't really have too many expectations. I already know that Arizona is a great school, so nothing stood out more than anything else on the trip."

Arizona has been on Gordon since before his sophomore season began and has always made him a priority in the class of 2013 and with good reason. The freakish athlete has a great all around game that makes any team better.

He plays with a passion to win and head coach Sean Miller has seen it and wants Gordon a part of his team.

"They tell me that when I get there they want me to start at the three-spot right away," explained Gordon. "The told me they can't guarantee a starting spot but as long as I work hard than I can earn it and I like that."

Gordon is still listing Arizona and Washington but puts Stanford and Oregon in there as well. The fifth ranked prospect in the class of 2013 according to says that a visit to Oregon is also in the works for November.

A decision does not appear to be coming anytime soon as Gordon says he expects to take his time.

"I want to make a decision after my junior season or after the AAU season next summer," he said.

Overall, he enjoyed his visit to Arizona and says that the style of play and coach Miller are aspects as to why he likes the Wildcats.

"My favorite part about Arizona is that whoever gets the ball can push it up the floor," said Gordon. "That's what I'm good at. It is a fast paced offense and they push the ball hard, which is good.

"Coach Miller is a high energy coach and an overall great guy. He gets the best out of players definitely."
