"I committed to NC State because of the coaches," said Gordon. "I felt like I was home when I was up there. They have a lot of good people and great coaches. It's just a great fit for me overall.
"I'm going to probably major in Education with a minor in Agriculture. I can't wait to make it back up to NC State."
Gordon held offers from NC State and East Carolina when he reached his decision. The 6-foot-2, 320-pounder was in Raleigh this past weekend for an unofficial visit, and that trip helped seal the deal for NC State.
"The visit went great," said Gordon. "We went to the Murphy Center and checked out the campus. I liked it a lot. The facilities at NC State are real nice. To be honest, I haven't seen any better, and I've been to Clemson, [South] Carolina, Georgia Tech, and Duke. It was the best I've seen."
Gordon will play center or right guard at NC State, and will do so for his recruiting coach, Jim Bridge.
"Coach Bridge said he likes my toughness and athleticism," Gordon said. "He likes how I move and feels I've got long arms for my size which help me. He said I play with a mean streak that he likes.
"They are talking about me maybe playing center if I go there. He said that I would play either center or right guard, but I think it's starting to sound like center."
Pack Pride will have more from Gordon on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
