Four-star shooting guard Eron Gordon is one of the top uncommitted prospects in the Midwest. The Indiana native put on a show for Cathedral with 28 points leading his team to a big win, and with the strong start to his senior season, recruiting interest continues to come in.
“I think I have been playing solid,” said Gordon. “As a team we have had a strong start. We had a tough loss in Ohio, but that is a game I think we learned a lot from.”
In terms of what he has been working on with his game, Gordon said, “I have definitely been working on my shooting. I have been working on catch and shoot, dribble pull ups, and free throws every day.”
Gordon almost made a commitment during the early signing period, but decided to wait things out. Now he says his recruitment is really picking up.
“It is getting crazy,” noted Gordon. “We are just approaching it day by day, and making sure I pick the best place for me.”
Ole Miss was the latest school to drop in on Gordon, watching him on Tuesday night, and he says things have been picking up between him and the Rebels.
“I know they are in a great conference in the SEC and are a good program,” noted Gordon. “Their coach expresses how much he likes me and they are showing a lot of interest.”
Another SEC school has also recently picked things up in Missouri.
“We just actually just started talking two or three weeks ago,” he said of the Tigers. “I know K.J. Walton is down there, and that is someone I grew up playing with, so I am somewhat familiar with them. Jeff Meyer used to coach there, and that is my dad’s college coach, so I know some things about Missouri.”
The school that to this point has recruited Gordon the hardest is Seton Hall. Gordon has already made a visit there, and has built a good relationship with the coaching staff.
“Things are progressing greatly,” said Gordon of the Pirates. “I have a strong relationship with Coach (Shaheen) Holloway, he was a McDonald’s All-American and he has just done a great job of recruiting me.”
When it comes to what is next for him in the process, Gordon said, “Honestly I just want to make sure I am focused on basketball. I know the college thing will come, and I want to make sure I get better every day.”
