Aaron Gordon is probably the most spectacular player on the West Coast for the 2013 recruiting class and appears to be an instant game-changer for any college basketball program. Where will the Archbishop Mitty star from San Jose end up playing in college?
According to a report from Steve Jones of the Louisville Courier-Journal, Gordon has set up his official visits to his top five schools. You'd have to think these are the favorites in winning his recruitment. The Arizona Wildcats, Kansas Jayhawks, Kentucky Wildcats, Oregon Ducks, and Washington Huskies are those listed in contention. Gordon had in-home visits with Arizona and Kentucky this week, will have more in-home visits with Washington and Kansas later on, and will start taking his official campus visits in late September and early October.
Gordon also recently took an unofficial visit to Cal. The Bears are probably an underdog in his recruitment, although Gordon is good friends with recent Cal commitment Jabari Bird. Stanford was also considered one of Gordon's early favorites and he's also taken an unofficial visit to Palo Alto.
