Eron Gordon Postpones College Announcement (UPDATED)
After initially saying the would announce his college choice on Saturday, Eron Gordon, a 6-foot-3 shooting guard from Indianapolis, has postponed his decision.
“I’ve decided to postpone the College Commitment would like explore my college visits,” he Tweeted.
Gordon had been listing LSU, Indiana, Butler, Nevada, Notre Dame, Auburn, Purdue and Nebraska, his brother Evan told SNY.tv.
Both Evan and Eric Gordon spent a year at Indiana.
Eric Gordon Sr. told SNY.tv in 2014 that any assumptions that Eron will automatically attend Indiana because of his brothers are false.
“That’s an assumption that isn’t necessarily correct,” he said. “At the time when the right time comes, we’ll have the schools narrowed down and we’ll know where he fits in well with what we’re looking for in a school.
“I hate when those assumptions pop up because there’s no assumption right now at all. I think a lot of schools do assume, but I look at each one of my son’s individually. What Eric needed and what Evan needed may not be what Eron needs. I’m just looking at what fits in best for them.”
The No. 15 shooting guard in the Class of 2016 according to 247Sports.com, Eron averaged 24.5 points and 4.8 rebounds at Cathedral High School beginning in January.
