While playing in just five of his team's nine games, Gordon finished the year with 255 yards receiving and two touchdowns while playing tight end. On defense, he ended with 40 tackles and two sacks.
"I had a 77-yard reception against South Miami, which was our longest of the season," Gordon said. "On defense, everyone kept rolling out to the other side. Both of my sacks came from behind."
Gordon said his senior season was a bit disappointing because of the record -- especially considering how talented the defense was. They had four seniors who are legitimate Division 1 recruits this year, including a first year player named Andre Coleman.
"He had bad grades and this was his first year playing," he said. "He turned it around on the grades and had a great season. He's got size, speed, and makes plays."
Gordon said he wasn't impressed with any opposing linemen he played against this season, including Northwestern's Chris Barney.
"I guess people like him because of his size," he said. "I really didn't play against anyone that I thought was real good this year. There were guys at other positions. Dustin (Forston) is pretty tight. Bryan Miller from Central's pretty good. Central has a middle linebacker (Humberto Abreu) who I thought was pretty damn good. I just wish we were in the playoffs."
Gordon, 6-4 and 255 pounds, continues to be a major recruiting priority this season for many programs.
"I got my five visits set," he said. "I talked to Oklahoma today and I'm setting that one up. I go to South Florida on January 14th. Miami will be the last weekend in January. And I'm still talking about getting a date with Florida State and LSU. Those are the five I'm still looking at."
Gordon said he's not ready to name a favorite yet but South Florida is creeping up his list.
"I went there this past weekend," he said. "I like them a lot. Courtney Denson is there now. Jackie and all those guys from Edison are there and they like it. Their best players are young and they're trying to get a bunch of Norland guys this year. Me, Gary (Watts), Garrett (White), and Dwight (Alberry) are all going up there together. They have a 10 million dollar weightroom too. They're moving to the Big East so they have a chance at a BCS every year too. But I aint gonna know for sure till after all my visits."
The talented defender says he's still high on UM.
"They're the hometown team," he said. "Coach Shannon has stuck with me the whole time. I'm gonna visit them last. If I see something better before then, it'll give me something to compare it to."
