Five Questions: Hoops target Eron Gordon

A new feature at Cardinal Authority will be sitting down with recruiting prospects for a Q&A session. Here we sit down with 2016 basketball target Eron Gordon of Indianapolis.

Eron Gordon is a 6-foot-2 junior guard from Indianapolis who recently made an unofficial visit the University of Louisville with his father, Eric Gordon, Sr.

The 6-foot-2 Gordon, ranked as the No. 31 prospect nationally in the Class of 2016, is the younger brother of former Indiana star and current New Orleans Pelican guard Eric Gordon. His other brother, Evan, has finished up his career also at Indiana.

The youngest Gordon holds scholarship offers from Indiana, Arizona State, Purdue and is hearing from a bunch of other schools.

Eron Gordon, who transferred from Indianapolis North Central to Cathedral earlier this week, averaged 14.7 points and 2.6 assists as a sophomore at North Central. He answered some questions from Cardinal Authority.

Cardinal Authority: When you visited Louisville a few weeks ago, your father (Eric Sr.) said it went "great." What did you think about the visit with the Cardinals?

Gordon: "I really felt like I got more familiar with the players and coaches and I got to see the campus. It went great for me."

CA: What did the coaches tell you about a potential offer?

Gordon: "They haven't offered yet but I think they're pretty close."

CA: Anything you can talk about what you liked on the visit to Louisville, anything that made it standout?

Gordon: "I saw a lot of intensity in the workouts that I watched and there was a whole lot of nice, good people at Louisville.

CA: What is your relationship with Louisville assistant Kenny Johnson?

Gordon: "He is close with my brother, Evan, and that really started off the relationship. When he left Indiana, he called Evan and he told him I just wasn't going to Indiana and coach Johnson said that Rick Pitino really wanted to recruit me."

CA: A lot of folks have just assumed you would go to Indiana, what do you think about that notion and what folks say?

Gordon: "I just want to be myself. I know a lot of people say things and I tell people I want to be recruited more. I've been held back since my freshman year a little since my brother went to IU. I think some schools did feel like I was likely to go to IU. I want to see all of the schools for myself. I hope more come i."
