Four-star 2016 guard files appeal to play this season


Eron Gordon, the younger brother of New Orleans Pelicans guard Eric Gordon, is a four-star prospect, regarded as the No. 44 overall recruit in the junior class by Rivals.

However, he is currently ineligible to play this season. Last month, the Indiana High School Athletic Association (ISHAA) upheld a ruling that would sideline the 6-foot-2 guard this winter. The Indianapolis native transferred from North Central High to Cathedral, which is believed to be for athletic reasons, not academic. On Saturday, Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star reported that the Gordons have filed an appeal with the Department of Education.

On Aug. 29, when the initially ruling was upheld, Gordon was given 30 days to file an appeal. If the Department of Education’s review panel does not overturn the ISHAA’s decision this case could end up in trial court.

Gordon currently holds offers Indiana and Purdue. This summer he told told that he’s already taken unofficial visits to Duke and Michigan. Gordon was also planning a visit to Kentucky.
