High School: Inkster Vikings (MI)
On playing defense in college: “I feel I am a football player, so it really wouldn’t stop me from going to a school if I had to play defense. This is my first year playing safety and I really like that position, too. I still am a receiver, but it’s not something that will hold me back from going to a college.”
Scouts, Inc.: “Where ever Gordon lands, his future offense and defensive coordinator are going to fight for his skills. This kid is a very talented, under-the-radar athlete who could develop into a productive player on either side of the ball in college.. Flashes good athleticism in coverage and breaks quickly undercutting throws. Ball skills are excellent. Would need added strength to play down in the box consistently but the physicality and aggressive temperament are there. As a receiver, he is very smooth and fluid for his high-cut frame.. Top-end speed is a question mark and he does lack great initial burst with ball. That said, Gordon is a great athlete with coveted physical skills to develop as a college player. Shows good ability on special teams as well. Potential sleeper and a kid who should flourish in college when he concentrates on one side of the ball and polishes up his fundamentals.”
Scout: “Has a nice big frame and uses it well. Excellent underneath and over the middle as he uses his body to shield defenders and shows the ability to make tough grabs in traffic. Is strong and breaks tackles in the open field. Has decent straight line speed after the catch, but is not a real burner nor is he super elusive. Can go up and get the jump ball, but must improve speed and acceleration to be more of a downfield threat at the next level.”
