Aaron Gordon, one of the top uncommitted players in the Class of 2013, has a new school on his list.
The 6-foot-8 Gordon out of San Jose (Calif.) Archbishop Mitty has added Oregon to Arizona, Kentucky and Washington.
Oregon was previously on Gordon’s list, and now they are back.
“Yes,” Mitty coach Tim Kennedy told SNY.tv by text. “Same as when they were on his original list.”
Kennedy said Gordon likes Oregon’s “facilities, players (especially Dominic Artis), coaching staff and he’s liked their style of play.”
Gordon and Artis both played with the Oakland Soldiers AAU outfit.
Gordon will sign in the spring, along with Andrew Wiggins, Julius Randle and Jermaine Lawrence.
