The guy is ridiculous and would be the biggest pickup in coach Sean Miller's tenure. He is tall, long, quick, freakishly athletic and has a frame to play several positions.
As far as basketball skills are concerned, he is very polished. He can handle the ball, has a consistent jumper, is great in the post and can defend nearly all five positions.
He is a recruit that all programs, including Kentucky, dream about. If he were to add himself to the Arizona commit list, the Wildcats' recruiting class would jump into the top five.
If Keith Frazier added at some point as well, U of A has another top-three class. But Gordon is the big fish. The comparisons made to Blake Griffin are not hyperbole, and he would make Arizona unquestionably one of the favorites for the 2014 National Championship.
Currently Gordon has three schools on his list: Arizona, Washington and Kentucky.
Arizona and Washington seem to be the leaders out of the three. Gordon has ties to Washington, as Lorenzo Romar grew up with Gordon's dad, Ed, in Los Angeles, and Washington began recruiting Aaron at the age of 13.
However, Gordon has said the race is wide open amongst the three schools on his list. With the recruitment of this stud 17-year-old in full swing, Arizona has five selling points that would appeal to any recruit.
