Mathews eyeing Colorado

Jordan Mathews has become a popular guy this summer. A three-star shooting guard from Santa Monica, Calif., Mathews is drawing attention from colleges around the country. He's got his eyes on a lot of schools, too, including Colorado.

Jordan Mathews, a 6-foot-3 guard, is the son of UCLA assistant coach Phil Mathews. UCLA has yet to offer Jordan Mathews a scholarship, but seven other schools have: Colorado, Gonzaga, Indiana, San Diego State, San Francisco, USC and Wyoming.

"I'm very impressed with Colorado," he said.

Living in Pac-12 country, Mathews has followed CU of late and said he likes what coach Tad Boyle is doing in Boulder. The Buffs won the Pac-12 tournament title last year and won one game in the NCAA tournament.

"I like their up-tempo pace," he said. "I think that guys improve in that system; I like that they seem like a very good team; they play team basketball."

This summer, Mathews is working on his game at various camps.

"I'm working on ball handling and my mid-range game," said Mathews, who is a skilled scorer.

Mathews said he has yet to nail down the five schools he will see on official visits, but he is certainly considering Colorado for one of those spots.

As for a decision, Mathews said that won't be coming any time soon.

"When I find the right fit, I'll definitely commit to that school," he said.
