Top In-State 2018 CB Prospect Talks UW Visit

When Washington began their season with a big win over Rutgers, they played host to one of the top defensive back prospects in the region in 2018 Archbishop Murphy (Everett, Wa.) CB Kyler Gordon and he said he was very impressed with what he saw...

"I had a great time," Gordon told "It was the third (UW) game I had been to, so I've seen them live before, but it was just good to get down on the field and watch them and see what they were doing. 

"I really had a great time watching the defensive backs and the way they played. They are so physical and I love how aggressive they are and they are all very confident in what they are doing and the gameplan they are trying to execute."

Gordon currently holds three offers -- OregonArizona and Washington -- and he said he has plans to visit at least one more of those three.

"I definitely want to get down to Oregon and see their gameday in person," Gordon said. "The game I'm looking at going is their game with Washington (October 8th). I know it's a big rivalry and that (the Huskies) haven't beaten them in a while, so it should be a really good game and a great atmosphere."

In addition to those three schools, Gordon has been talking to several other programs who have said they like what they have seen out of him thus far.

"I have talked with UCLA a little bit and USC has also been in contact with me," Gordon said. "Oregon State and Washington State have also reached out to me too.

"It's really early in the process, so right now I'm just sorta taking things slow. I feel blessed to have the offers I already have and I want to let the process play out a little bit before I start to look at when I'd like to make a decision."

Archbishop Murphy is off to a dominating start having beaten their first two opponents by a combined score of 132-0, so Gordon, a starter at one of the corner positions, hasn't played much past the first half, but he's still managed to post six tackles, one tackle-for-loss and two interceptions.

The Wildcats take on rival Kings this Friday.

We'll continue to keep tabs on Gordon in the coming weeks and months and we will update news on him as it happens. Top Stories
