Aaron Gordon Recruiting Profile

Go back to the 2013 Pac-12 Basketball Recruiting Board.

School and location: Archbishop Mitty, San Jose, CA

Schools considering Washington, Oregon, New Mexico, Kentucky, and Arizona are in the mix now.

Washington (possible favorite), Arizona, New Mexico, Kansas, Stanford. Here's him talking about his top 5.

Rankings: 3rd in ESPNU Super 60 (top recruit in West, 2nd best power forward). 6th overall in Rivals. 2nd best power forward in Scout. 4th overall in 247 Sports.

Measureables: 6-8, around 210-220 pounds

Position: Likely a highly athletic small forward, or an undersized power forward unless he grows a few more inches.

Stats: Averaged 22.9 PPG and 12.8 RPG last season.

Attributes: One thing is obvious, Gordon can dunk. He's near unstoppable in the transition game. His athleticism is excellent for his size, and he definitely has all the attributes to become a dominant playmaker from the 3 or the 4.

Gordon just loves to leap. He does a great job working fullcourt and developing action from one side of the court to the other. He runs the floor exceptionally well and goes sideline to sideline. He can

Gordon can bang down low in the post. He can stretch the floor by working it from the outside and create as a point forward. He can stroke it from outside, and he can be a defensive force as well.

Video highlights

Windmills! Help defense blocks! Working the baseline! Pull-up jumper! Behind-the-back dribble! Alley-oops! Spin move in the paint! Dunks, dunks of every kind! Ball-handling in the backcourt like a wing despite having the size of a big man! Exclamation points, exclamation points, exclamation points!!!

If Aaron Gordon isn't in an NBA Dunk Contest down the line, things have gone horribly wrong.
