The talented prospect is looking at West Virginia, Clemson, UCF, Hawaii, Indiana and Texas Tech. Clemson and West Virginia have been recruiting the talented athlete from day one and that appears to be helping their chances.

The statistics are very impressive for the 5-11, 190 pound receiver, especially when you consider an injured ankle has limited him. Gordon has only played 2 complete games this season but he has over 700 yard receiving on the season. In one game this season he had 175 yards and 7 catches while only playing 2 quarters.

"He's doing real well. Bruce is second in the conference in catches and first in yardage. He would be even higher but we are spreading the ball around a lot more than we did last year."

Gordon is a best friend and former teammate with current Clemson running back Duane Coleman. "They are best friends. They talk almost every day," stated Siegal. Coleman would have headed to Dodge City with his best friend if he had not qualified at Clemson.

What is Gordon looking for at the collegiate level? "He's looking for somewhere that will spread the ball around. He wants to be the go to guy. He wants to be the Peter Warwick on the team. He wants to be with people that are very up front with him. He was very impressed with Coach Scott when he was up here last year."

Gordon will have 3 years to play 2 on the collegiate level. The prize recruit is scheduled to graduate in December so he would be able to enroll in January.

The JUCO star has not setup an official visit with Clemson. "He's waiting to hear from the Clemson coaching staff about setting up an official visit," stated Siegal. Gordon has already setup an official visit with West Virginia.

We will continue to keep you updated on this outstanding JUCO receiver from Dodge City Community College, right up through signing day 2004.
