Gordon, Rose Make Unofficial Visit

Two highly ranked players by Scout.com made their way to a Big Ten campus Friday evening. Derrick Rose and Eric Gordon were spotted in Bloomington.

The plot has thickened.

On Friday evening, Derrick Rose and Eric Gordon were spotted on the campus of Indiana University taking part in an apparent unofficial visit to the school.

For Gordon, the visit to Indiana is the second confirmed trip he's taken to Bloomington since the conclusion of the summer period. Scout.com's No. 2 player in the Class of 2006 committed to Illinois Nov. 28, 2005 but his situation has morphed into one of the most chronicled sagas of the past few seasons. The story took on a life of its own when Illinois was joined by Indiana in gyms coast to coast watching Gordon during July.

Gordon and Rose teamed up in July to win the Nike Peach Jam and take second place in the prestigious Reebok Big Time. Rose recently released his final list and Indiana was on it, further sparking debate if the two stars would play together in college. Illinois was not on Rose's final list.
