Gordon working hard

Aaron Gordon is the top priority or numerous schools around the country. Read on to see how he is handling his recruitment, what schools he is looking at, and more.

The recruiting process is nothing new for Archbishop Mitty (Calif.) combo forward Aaron Gordon. He has been an elite level recruit for years and will be able to attend the college of his choice.

However, choosing a school is far from Gordon's top priority as he is busy rehabilitating a foot injury.

"Right now, I'm just taking it easy," Gordon said. "I haven't been able to play a lot of ball, which is obviously pretty frustrating, but other than that, all is well.

"I'm trying to make the best out of a tough situation. The big thing I need to continue to improve on is my shot."

Gordon believes that his future is on the wing, which has led him to focus on certain aspects of his game.

"My future position is on the wing and I need to work on becoming a reliable shooter and ball handler," he said. "Those are far and away my top goals along with improving my conditioning."

Gordon isn't thinking much about his college destination, but he does have a short list of schools.

"The main schools that stand out are Washington, Arizona, Oregon, Kentucky and a couple other schools," Gordon said. "I like Washington because of Coach Romar and the style of play they run. I like the Seattle area. The facilities are good and Coach Romar plays the type of game I want to play in.

"I like Arizona for many of the same reasons I like Washington. Coach Miller is a very good coach and also plays an up-tempo style. Arizona has better facilities, though."

As of now, Gordon is in no hurry to decide on a college.

"I plan on taking all five visits," Gordon said. "I'm not sure which five schools I will visit. Regardless, taking visits is a ways off.

"I don't even plan on going on visits until after the high school season."
