The most common and tantalizing player comp for San Jose native Aaron Gordon (No. 4, ESPN 100) is Clippers All-Star Blake Griffin.
As with any projection, the Gordon-Griffin link has its superficialities (both players look similar physically) and its legitimate talking points (both have serious hops), but ultimately is little more than a way to generate cheap buzz.
What we do know is that scouts regard the ''tweener" forward as an elite player in a loaded 2013 class, and that Gordon's school decision has boiled down to Kentucky, Oregon, Washington and Arizona.
Ahead we'll try to map out each school's appeal, as well as its potential pitfalls.
