Two of the nation's best recruits for the 2013 class, Aaron Gordon and Jabari Bird, are considering going to the same college as they take their game to the next level. With just months left before they announce their school of their choosing, the two will take a couple of visits together to check out facilities and campuses all across the west coast.
Gordon, a five-star forward out of Archbishop Mitty HS in San Jose, and Bird, a five-star guard from Salesian HS in Richmond, CA, will visit the University of Colorado next month, according to a report.
Here is the latest from 24/7 Sports:
"I have Cal and Washington as my top two you could say and then there is Colorado and Oregon," Bird said. "Those are my final four schools I will be looking at."
Bird will visit Cal first on September 1st on an official visit before hitting up Colorado on the 8th, Oregon on the 22nd, and finishing his visits at Washington on the 29th of September.
During the Colorado and Washington visits Bird will travel with AAU teammate and friend Aaron Gordon.
"Right now those two visits we will take together," says Bird. "I don't know how to put it, but we aren't a package deal but we are. Don't be shocked to see us both play at the same college. It isn't a required thing but we like all the same schools."
In addition to Bird naming his top schools, Gordon has also announced Arizona and Washington lead in his recruitment. It comes as a bit of a surprise that Colorado will receive a visit from the two highly regarded prospects, although head coach Tad Boyle has been on quite a roll lately with the recruiting trail.
Look for both players to make a decision in the spring as signing day nears.
