Gordon Anxious to Visit Notre Dame

Leonard Gordon has yet to visit Notre Dame, but that will soon change. The Kentucky product will be visiting Notre Dame in the near future.

Recruits from the state of Kentucky are often times overlooked. While that may be the case, it does not stop college coaches from far and wide taking a look at the Bluegrass State's top talent each fall.

Fort Campbell is off to a 3-0 start and No. 1 ranking by the Associated Press Poll in the 2A division this year, thanks in large part to the play of Leonard Gordon, S, 5-10, 190 pounds.

"We're off to a really good start," Gordon proclaimed. "I took one to the house last week. I have one interception for a touchdown so far this year. Tackles, I don't really know. I'd have to add them up."

Gordon has been playing safety so far this season, but will also play quarterback this fall. As for his college position, that is not completely set either, at least from the Notre Dame coaching staff's perspective.

"Safety, but coach Minter said I could possibly roll down and play some corner, then move back to safety," Gordon said when asked what position the Irish were recruiting him to play."

Speaking of the Notre Dame, Gordon will be taking a look at the Notre Dame campus in the near future.

"I already spoke to coach Minter and coach Weis and I'm taking an unofficial (visit) for SC (Southern California)," Gordon said.

Does Gordon have a leader?

"I'm not going to say anything right now, but I really want to see Notre Dame's campus," he said.

Four other schools appear to be in the mix with Gordon as well.

"I'm going to go down to Vanderbilt before I go to Notre Dame for an unofficial visit," Gordon said. "I like Duke…I have been to Kentucky and Louisville so many times for unofficial visits. I have a good friend who plays free safety for Kentucky so every time I think aboit it Kentucky would be in there because of my friend."
