U of L, UK in pursuit of CB Leonard Gordon

Fort Campbell (KY) High School junior <b>Leonard Gordon</b> is excited and honored by the recruiting process that has increased over the past few weeks. The defensive back prospect already has two scholarship offers, with many more coming in the near future.

Fort Campbell High School will be a frequent stop for college coaches over the next year as numerous programs attempt to convince juniors Micah Johnson and Leonard Gordon to come play for them.

For the 5-foot-10, 190-pound Gordon, the recruiting process, which is growing to new heights with each passing week, has become a process that he is not only excited about being apart of, but honored to be the type of person that dozens of college coaches want on their team.

"It's almost overwhelming really," said Gordon. "It's really exciting to be going through it. It's an honor really."

Gordon, who was invited and participated in the junior combine at the U.S. Army All-American combine, has already picked up two scholarship offers, but anticipates more to come in the near future.

"Kentucky and Louisville are my first two offers," Gordon explained. "I'm starting to get a lot of mail now too. Indiana sends a lot, I just got something from Arkansas and there are others. Arkansas said that they are looking forward to coming by our school."

Gordon will likely continue to see his stock rise over the spring and summer months.

"My coach hasn't sent my video out yet, so I should here from more schools after they get a chance to see it," said Gordon.

Gordon also plans on improving his on the field abilities quite often during the coming months as well. He anticipates attending both the MSL and Nike combines as well as passing tournaments and camps at Louisville, Kentucky, Western Kentucky and possibly Florida State.

Gordon, who is originally from Ocala, Florida, pointed out that he's wide open at this point in the process and could easily play out of state.

"There's no way I could even think of a certain way that I would be leaning right now," Gordon explained. "I have friends at Kentucky and I like the way the Louisville is going, but I'm also hoping to hear from some of the schools in Florida. I still have a lot of family down there."
