Aaron Gordon will be a Wildcat, just a different kind. Gordon has decided to play his college ball at Arizona, picking them over Washington, Oregon and Kentucky.
Despite reports that the decision would be “shocking,” the fact that Gordon did not choose Kentucky comes as no surprise to UK fans. Signs have been pointing to the fourth best player in the nation staying out west for weeks, and Gordon himself told Sean Miller his decision four to five weeks ago. Gordon said that even though Kentucky was in the running, he is excited to be a “west coast Wildcat.” He threw Kentucky fans a bone by saying how competitive UK’s practices will be next season.
Good luck, Aaron. Next?
