Gordon taking everything in stride

Class of 2016 star Eron Gordon is in no hurry to make his college decision.

Class of 2016 shooting guard Eron Gordon has been on the national radar for a while. The 6-foot-1 scorer has the family bloodlines and the ability to make him standout. Now he is getting ready for what should be a big sophomore season.

"I just want to make sure that everybody plays hard and that we win sectionals and go deep in the tournament," said Gordon of the season.

Gordon has always been someone who is able to get to the rim with his combination of power and athleticism. Now he is looking much better shooting the basketball.

"Basically I have just been shooting a lot more," said Gordon. "I feel like now I just have a good feel with my shot, so it is helping a lot."

Recruiting wise Gordon has interest from Indiana, Michigan, Butler, Xavier, Purdue, Notre Dame, Michigan State, and a host of other schools. Recently he was able to make it down to Indiana to watch his brother, Evan, play, and it was a good experience.

"It was pretty fun seeing my brother out there and to have him play against Yogi (Ferrell) and some of the younger guys that I have played against, it is fun," said Gordon. "I hadn't seen him play in a while so that was fun to be able to do."

According to Gordon while he and his brother talk often, at this point he isn't asking too many questions about his Indiana experience.

"Evan doesn't talk to me too much about Indiana or Coach (Tom) Crean," said Gordon. "Honestly I don't want to know too much. I just want to be a fan of his this year, so we don't really talk about much since I am still a recruit."

Gordon was recently supposed to visit Michigan, but that trip didn't happen due to weather. Instead Gordon and his father will try to make a visit up there for a game this season.

With Gordon there are connections all around. Obviously both of his brothers have gone to Indiana and his dad's college coach, Jeff Meyer, is now an assistant at Michigan. For Gordon that makes for some interesting times on the recruiting trail.

"A lot of my recruiting situations are a little weird," said Gordon. "With my dad having played, my brother Evan being a recruit, and of course Eric being one of the biggest recruits from Indiana, there are some weird situations having known all of these guys. It feels like I have been a recruit since I was three years old."

Gordon is currently viewed as the No. 7 shooting guard in the class of 2016.
