Sooners Top the List…

East Central cornerback David Gordon is still pumped up about receiving a scholarship offer from the Oklahoma Sooners. As a matter of fact he got the fuzzy feeling all over again when the actual written offer arrived in the mail. Sooners Illustrated caught up with him to get the latest.

David Gordon, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound cornerback from East Central High in Tulsa, Okla., is now considering scholarship offers from schools like Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Tulsa.

The blazing fast athlete admits that he is still a little in awe about how the whole recruiting process is starting to play out.

"I just never really expected it," Gordon explained. "Growing up you just do not expect things like this to happen to you. Everything is coming it out good, but it is just coming out like a rush. It is all happening so fast."

"It was a big change. It was change for me personally because of just how fast everything was. Everything just exploded in a week."

The biggest offer on the table is undoubtedly the one from the home-state Sooners, and Gordon is still pleased.

"Man, it was a big deal. It was what we have been waiting for. I just got the offer letter in the mail actually, but it was a really big deal."

"They offered me when I went in to coach Wright's office. They said that they were going to offer when I went in to Coach Stoop's (office), which is nice. He (Stoops) offered me."

East Central Head Coach Stacy Hill informed SI that OU most likely held a lead for his star athletes services, and Gordon confirmed that fact when asked.

"Yes," Gordon said flat out when asked if it was accurate that the Sooners were clearly at the top of his list. "We are still waiting. We want to evaluate the schools and check them out. Think about what would be the best fit for me."

"Arkansas, OU, OSU, and TU are the (other) schools right now. Arkansas, TU, and OU have offered, but I do not think that OSU has offered yet."

Gordon will be utilized on both sides of the ball next season for East Central, but his future will most likely be on the defensive side of the ball in college. That being said he is looking forward to putting up some big numbers in the fall.

"It was good last year, but I just want to play more. I just want to touch the ball more. I feel like I can make bigger plays if I can just touch it a little bit more."
