Rich Rodriguez on Gordon: “Outstanding safety prospect. … Can play multiple spots for us on defense.”
Scouts, Inc.: “Gordon is an impressive two-way player at the high school level with good size, athleticism and great competitiveness.. Very raw in technique as DB at this point but is a good athlete with smooth movement skills and quality physical tools for a program to mold at the next level.. Gordon brings good range, athleticism, ball skills and deceptive physicality to the table as a prospect. Might even get a look at running back from the natural running skills we saw on film. Good upside and could flourish once he concentrates on the fundamentals of one position.”
Allen Trieu, Scout: “Gordon is very solidly built. He is a strong kid and shows good straight line speed. Having only played one year of safety, he must refine his technique in terms of man to man coverage, in particular, improving his backpedal and breaks. However, he shows very natural instincts and anticipation as well as good ball skills. He is a good athlete who can go up and either intercept passes or break them up. He is also a solid tackler.”
