Gordon living up to expectations

Class of 2016 standout Eron Gordon had a very successful freshman season and looks to get better over the summer.

Indianapolis (Ind) North Central freshman Eron Gordon had an impressive year. The 6-foot-2 athletic guard put up big scoring numbers, and also pulled in a lot of recruiting interest. Now Gordon is ready for a big summer on the AAU circuit.

Being the younger brother of Eric Gordon and Evan Gordon, high expectations were placed on Eron Gordon from the moment he stepped on a high school basketball floor. Still for the youngest Gordon brother he says it wasn't that big of a deal.

"It wasn't too different because it is all I know," said Gordon of the pressure and expectations. "It is a little different than some kids because you get a lot of attention and everything."

For Gordon he put up big numbers and felt that the year overall was a success.

"I feel like my freshman year I did pretty good," said Gordon. "I am just working on my game and trying to show that I can play different roles."

Recruiting wise there has been no shortage of interest in Gordon. Indiana and Purdue offered him a scholarship while schools like Michigan, Michigan State, Louisville, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Cincinnati, Xavier, and Butler are all very interested in the 2016 prospect.

Gordon knows the coaches are watching and there is a lot of interest in him, but he isn't paying too much attention to it right now.

"It's different to get all of that attention as a freshman, but I haven't gotten too much contact," said Gordon. "It is nice to know that I will have options."

According to Gordon both of his brothers are telling him not even to worry about recruiting right now and simply to focus on basketball.

"They are just saying I should focus on basketball because schools and all of that will be there later in my career," said Gordon.

This spring and summer Gordon will be playing on the 17- and under level with the Eric Gordon All-Stars Green. It will give him a chance to put his skills against some of the top players in the country.
