Most prospects come to camps these days mainly to be seen by coaches and be recruited. Gordon, on the other hand, came to the Mississippi State camp primarily for one purpose.

"I came to this camp to have fun and I had fun," said the talented lineman.

He also learned some things while having fun.

"I learned how to shoot my hands," said Gordon. "I knew how to do that about 50/50."

Mississippi State is one of several schools that he has camped at this summer, with a couple more camps on the horizon.

"I have gone to camps at Ole Miss, East Mississippi (Community College) and Coahoma (Community College)," said Gordon. "I am also going to Tennessee and Vanderbilt."

Recruiting-wise, several colleges are showing interest in Gordon, with one having already offered.

"I am being recruited by Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Michigan and Florida," said Gordon. "Mississippi State has offered and Ole Miss is showing interest. Mississippi State offered when I was in the 9th grade."

The early offer confirmed to Gordon that his hard work has paid off.

"When you put in the work, you get the results," said Gordon.
