Gordon hasn’t made any other official announcements since November 11 on Twitter.
“UOregeon, Uwashington, Ukansas, Uarizona, Ukentucky…this is gunna be tough,” says Gordon on Twitter.
Recently, his mother confirmed that Gordon has chosen Arizona, Washington, and Kentucky.
“Aaron has narrowed his list to Arizona, Washington, and Kentucky in no particular order,” says Shelly Gordon, Aaron Gordon’s mother.
Although Gordon dropped a lot of big name schools, many believed Arizona and Washington were the frontrunners. Some were surprised to see Kentucky making the list, but others weren’t with Kentucky coming off a NCAA championship last year and their best player going No. 1 in the NBA draft.
Analyzing Gordon’s situation with each team, his best chance for success is Kentucky.
The Arizona Wildcats are already big and talented in their front court with Grant Jerrettt, Kaleb Tarczewski, Brandon Ashley or Angelo Chol.
Washington does need to revamp their roster, but I believe they’re probably ranked third on Gordon’s list. The reason why I believe this is because Washington’s basketball program hasn’t had the success that Arizona and Kentucky have had. I feel that will play a big role in Gordon’s decision.
Kentucky is Kentucky. Nerlens Noel is most likely going to put his name in the NBA draft, and if he does, Gordon would be greatly needed. Although Kentucky is already talented, Gordon’s talent would definitely make them one of the favorites to winning the NCAA championship again.
