Gordon glad to be back
It was a frustrating few months for Indianapolis (Ind.) Cathedral shooting guard Eron Gordon. Shortly before the season Gordon was deemed ineligible due to a transfer, however following legal battles recently he was cleared to play, and now the four-star prospect is glad to be back. “It is fun to be back out on the court and playing with a new group of guys,” said Gordon. “Sitting out was tough, but I am glad to be back out playing.” While sitting out Gordon was working out consistently with his father, and says he was refining some aspects of his game. “I have been working on my jumper,” said Gordon. “Mainly my one dribble pull-up and spot shooting has been a focus, and also I have been working to get in the best physical position.” Recruiting wise schools such as Butler, Indiana, Michigan, Arizona State, Purdue, Xavier, and others have been in the mix with Gordon. For Gordon’s first game back Butler head coach Chris Holtmann as well as a representative from Arizona State were in attendance. About Butler, Gordon said, “It was pretty nice to have Coach Holtmann at the game. They flew back from Milwaukee and he came right to my game which says a lot. They were here to see me, and it meant a lot for them to do that.” Gordon’s older brother, Evan, was at Arizona State for a few years and that has built a sense of comfort with the Sun Devils. “That relationship has grown tremendously with Evan being out there,” said Gordon. “Coach (Herb) Sendek is a great coach. I feel like it is a good school and a good fit for me.” Also Indiana gets mentioned prominently since both Evan and Eric, his older brothers, played at the in-state school. “The level of communication is high,” said Gordon of Indiana. “I talk to Coach (Tom) Crean and the players a lot, and I have a good relationship with IU.” For now Gordon is in no hurry to make a decision and says the family has a plan for the process. “I am just taking it slow,” said Gordon. “My recruitment process won’t be as hectic, but I think it is better that way. There are certain colleges that you know want you, and you can focus on them.” Currently Gordon is viewed as the No. 11 shooting guard and the No. 62 player overall in the class of 2016.
