The 6-foot-8, 212-pound forward is considered to be one of the best players in 2013 and expects to be on the court sooner than later.
"Seeing my team without me is awful and seeing them struggle is not good," Gordon said. "I can't wait to get out of this boot, which is around June 15. I will definitely be playing again this summer."
As far as recruiting goes, Gordon says that it is much of the same in terms of what schools he has been hearing from.
"Recruiting is going good," he said. "It is just like it has been going on since high school season. There is a new rule about how much coaches can call you, so that can change things, but it is all the same schools.
Gordon does not have any public favorites, but says that there are a handful of reasons as to why he is impressed with Arizona.
"I love the style of play," he said. "They have an offense where basically the guy that gets the rebound pushes it forward and tries to start the break, so I love that about it. The facilities are amazing and I am looking forward to building a relationship with Sean Miller and the coaches."
Gordon will be taking an official visit in order to get a closer look at those factors that he likes about the UA.
"I am going to be visiting Arizona for the Red and Blue game and then I will probably take one to Oregon also," he said.
As Gordon looks at each school recruiting him, he has a good idea of what he wants his future school to look like.
"I am looking at the quality of the facilities, how personable all the players are, how the coaches will look out for my well-being and the style of play," he said.
