The 6-3, 290 pound prospect has seen the interest level increase over the past month. "South Carolina, Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech and North Carolina State are showing interest right now," Gordon told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.

Gordon is still awaiting his first offer, but that should come sometime soon as schools get a better look at the star lineman.

When asked if he has any early favorites, Gordon responded, "Not yet. They are all about the same."

Gordon traveled to Columbia earlier this month to attend practice at South Carolina and said that his trip went well.

For Clemson, assistant head coach Brad Scott is recruiting Gordon and teammates Vincent Scott and Corleon Brown for the Tigers.

Clemson will also likely have the opportunity to impress Gordon later this summer. "I would like to camp at South Carolina and Clemson this summer. I have also been invited to the Nike camp."

"I'm not sure if I prefer to stay in-state or not at this time. I really don't have a favorite among the in-state schools."

Gordon is already starting to think about how he will make the difficult decision about where he will attend college. "I am looking for a good program. I want to find a place where I fit in. I want a good coaching staff and a chance to see lots of playing time."

Cedric Gordon had an outstanding junior season for his team, recording 76 tackles, 32 unassisted and 3 tackles for loss.
