Gordon wants to visit

Aaron Gordon is being heavily recruited and knows where he wants to visit. Read on to see which schools those are, how his weekend in Minnesota went, and more.

San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty combo forward Aaron Gordon is one of the elite players in the country and has been heavily recruited for years, but his recent trip to the Minnesota EYBL was bittersweet.

"We (Oakland Soldiers) went 4 and 0 up there and the team played well," Gordon said. "It was nice because I was absolutely awful. I couldn't get any rhythm going and was just kind of out of it.

"I just didn't play well, but it really says something about our team that we went undefeated and I hardly did anything."

Gordon isn't letting the tournament get him down.

"It's part of basketball." Gordon said. "You just have to bounce back. You can't play well every game, but it was just disappointing because you want to play your best against the best.

"I'm still really excited for the summer. We're going to be going all over the place and I'll have a chance to play better."

Despite his poor performance in Minnesota, Gordon can still choose the college he wants to attend, but recruiters shouldn't hold their breath because a decision is not coming soon.

"I want to focus on basketball this summer," Gordon said. "I have a lot of things that I really want to improve, mainly my shooting because I'm going to have to transition to the wing. I'll probably try to make a decision sometime mid-senior year."

Gordon already has an idea of what schools he wants to visit.

"I definitely want to check out Washington," Gordon said. "I also want to see Arizona, Oregon and UNLV. I'm also interested in New Mexico, but I've been out there before and I know what they have to offer.

"That's pretty much where things stand right now. There probably won't be much movement in my recruiting until at least after the AAU season."
