"I did commit," Gordon a native of Memphis, Tenn. "I wanted to be closer to home."
Gordon, who told ITV that he has yet to inform the Nebraska staff of his decision, said that the U of L coaches seemed pleased with his new decision.
"Yeah, they were excited," continued the soft-spoken Gordon, who made his official visit to Louisville this past weekend.
However, the 4-star prospect has yet to send U of L his Letter of Intent.
"I haven't sent it yet, but I have it right here," Gordon explained. "I'll send it soon."
An honorable mention All-Conference selection this past season, Gordon is eligible to enroll at U of L in early January and can participate in spring practice.
"They said that I could come in and get a starting spot at tackle because they have an opening there," Gordon explained.
