Gordon Is In No Hurry To Make A Decision

The Huskies are in the market for a couple of corners and one of the top prospects on their board is 2018 Archbishop Murphy (Everett, Wa.) CB Kyler Gordon...

"Things haven't really slowed down for me on the recruiting front, but I haven't really been talking to any new schools," Gordon said when asked how the process was progressing. "I've been on visits to UCLAUSCOregonOregon StateWashington, and Stanford, actually I just got back from Stanford, so that visit is still pretty fresh in my mind."

The visit to Palo Alto was Gordon's first and he came away impressed with what he saw.

"You always hear about the academics there and that can be intimidating, but the people there were all really warm and made me feel comfortable there," Gordon said. "I got the chance to see their facilities and meet with the coaches. It's really a great program to be part of, so it gave me a lot to think about.

"Most of my time was spent with the DB coach there, coach (Duane) Akina, but I did get the chance to talk to coach (David) Shaw a little bit too. "

Gordon said he hopes to hit Washington's spring game this coming weekend and is open to taking a few more unofficial visits, but hasn't set any up at this point.

"Washington is close and they are recruiting me pretty hard, so I'll go see them for the spring game probably," Gordon noted. "I might take visits to other schools -- possibly Nebraska or Notre Dame -- but I need to check on my schedule and my team's schedule for spring football to make sure nothing conflicts."

Gordon won't be a mainstay on the camp circuit, but he did say he's planning to make the trip down to Oakland the second-to-last weekend of May to take part in the NIKE regional camp.

"There's lots of great talent there, so it would be good to get down there and compete," Gordon said. 

As far as when he plans to make a decision on his future, Gordon made no bones about the fact that he plans to let the process take its course.

"I don't see me making the decision before my senior season," Gordon said. "I want to take my visits to see all of the schools and really take my time before I make any sort of a decision."

A Scout Top 300 prospect, Gordon is rated as a four-star prospect and is ranked as the 27th best corner in the country and third-best out West.
