Basketball Recruiting: Can Oregon Still Get Aaron Gordon?

Today, five-star power forward Aaron Gordon restated that both Arizona and Washington were the two favorites at the EBYL Finals at the NIKE Peach Jam. Despite the current shutout by the prospect, is their still hope for the Ducks to land one of the most elite players in the class of 2013? Possibly, and Oregon isn’t giving up until it’s over.

First, it was confirmed by Jeff Borzello via Twitter:

Arizona and Washington were narrowed down from a list that included Oregon, Kentucky, and Kansas. Some sources have said that New Mexico was apart of the mix, but most recruiting services do not have the Lobos listed.

That didn’t stop any of the head coaches from watching him at the Peach Jam. Dana Altman, among others from Gordon’s top five, Florida, Oklahoma State, and probably more. From Jerry Meyer via Twitter:

According to a report by SB Nation earlier today, Washington’s head coach Lorenzo Romar is close with the family. But Arizona would be a likely favorite if the decision continues to be on hold.

The latest on Gordon’s decision? From SB Nation, “he intends to make a decision in the spring once his high school season wraps up, but that could change at any moment.”

Gordon is a very high prospect across the boards. He is ranked as high as fourth overall on ESPN.
