Gordon thinking about Nebraska

Nebraska is looking for a strong class on the offensive side of the ball this season and wide receiver is going to get a lot of interest. Nebraska has consistently upgraded their receivers from one year to the next in terms of size and speed. Now, the Huskers are looking for a couple that have both as well as hands. Nebraska spotted one early down in Houston, Texas.

Josh Gordon, a 6-foot-4 and 210-pound wide receiver from Houston (Texas) Lamar, has had a busy summer and is ready for the start of fall camp. He has been working had all summer.

"Things this summer have been going good," Gordon said. "We did seven on seven. It's over. We didn't qualify for state this year. I am just waiting for two a days to start.

"I am just working out in the weight room trying to get stronger. I am also working on the track to try and build endurance and to build speed."

Gordon is sitting on some nice offers already. He is looking particularly at what the schools have to offer him in terms of the offense and how fast he can see the field.

"I am up to six offers. I have offers from Arizona, Nebraska, Houston, Missouri, Texas A&M and Baylor. I am looking at the style of offense, playing time and how I fit in."

The Huskers have made a favorable impression with Gordon so far. Nebraska has made the cut for the top three and the period that they are in intrigues Gordon in a rebuilding possibility.

"Nebraska is in the top three with Texas A&M and Missouri. They have a great football tradition and it's a great football program. They are rebuilding and that interests me the most.

"They are looking for help when it comes to building the program back up and they are looking at me to come help do that. I can see myself fitting in a situation like that."

That rebuilding process is something that Gordon is paying attention to as well as the commitment list. Gordon liked the recent commitment of Cody Green to Nebraska.

"Yeah, it makes the situation when you think about going there a lot better. It makes things less stressful and less things to worry about because you will have guys like that to throw you the ball.

"I don't know a lot about him. I know that he's a five-star guy at the quarterback position so I know that he's pretty good. I play 5A and I know that he is playing 4A."

Nebraska might have missed out on hosting Gordon this summer, but as of right now Gordon is eyeing Nebraska as one of his official visits this fall.

"I am not for sure. I wanted to get to one of their camps, but I didn't get anything in the mail about them so I figure they are over. They should be one of my official visits this fall."
