The California Golden Bears landed their first class of 2018 commit on Wednesday when Jacobi Gordon committed to the program following an unofficial visit, according to Scout.com's Ryan Gorcey.
A 4-star small forward from Houston, Texas, Gordon made his decision official with a post on Twitter:
Gordon reportedly landed on Cal despite fielding offers from powerhouses like Oregon, the University of Connecticut, Creighton, and Oklahoma.
"I liked the campus, I felt comfortable with the coaches," Gordon said of Cal, per Gorcey. "Me and my parents had a long talk with the assistant coaches and the head coach, and it was just the best fit for me -- college basketball, education, and I can get to the NBA."
According to Scout.com, Gordon ranks 84th overall among all 2018 recruits and is the 22nd-ranked small forward among his peers. He's also the fourth-ranked player at the 3 in the Midland Region and state of Texas.
For the Golden Bears, nabbing a 4-star talent like Gordon represents a major boon for a program that has to compete with perennial Pac-12 forces like Arizona, UCLA and Oregon each recruiting cycle.
Once he arrives on campus, the 6'6'', 205-pound swingman should bring an injection of perimeter polish and transition bounce based on the way he's performed to this point at Global Learning Village.
