Trent Gordon Breaks Down his game and more

Three-Star cornerback Trent Gordon checks in from Manvel (Texas) at 5-foot-11, 173-pounds. Gordon, who recently announced for Penn State will be a busy man this summer.

“I'm a top recruit because I can do a lot of things on and off the field,” Trent Gordon said. “I'm a game-changer. I know how to stay out of trouble off the field and getting my major won't be a problem.”

 

More than a few teams are fighting for Gordon and his services.

 

“Tennessee, Penn State Nittany Lions, Florida Gators, Duke Blue Devils, Oklahoma Sooners, UCLA Bruins, Cal Berkeley, and Oklahoma St,” Gordon said.

 

Gordon will visit Penn State this summer and play with his school 7 on 7 teams while continuing to improve his game.

 

“Of course I'm going to Penn this summer, and that looks about the only school that I might visit so far, but I'll have to see,” Gordon said. “I don't know what camps yet but the only 7on 7 I plan on doing is with my school's team.  This summer I'm going to be in the weight room getting stronger, and also I'm going to be going to my defensive backs trainer Clay Mack so that I can intensify what already have on the field.”

 

Scout.com Take

 

Trent Gordon is a Power Five conference-caliber defensive back prospect who will likely play cornerback at the next level, though he's thrived as a safety in high school. Gordon looks and plays bigger than his 5-foot-11 listing suggests, and he's long and lean, giving him plenty of space to add bulk in college. Gordon plays for one of Texas' strongest Class 5A programs and will be accustomed to good competition both in practice and games. He's a smart player who anticipates where the ball is going, whether defending the pass or the run. Gordon closes fast and can deliver the big hit. Those traits could also translate as a blitzer at the next level. Being a somewhat long-limbed DB, Gordon can improve his balance and lateral fluidity, but he possesses the tools to be a high-major cover man. - Gabe Brooks
