Aaron Gordon discusses Arizona, Washington and Kentucky recruitment

Aaron Gordon has a choice to make, and he appears to have done his homework on making a decision between the Arizona Wildcats, Washington Huskies and Kentucky Wildcats.

Rush The Court caught up with top-five recruit Aaron Gordon recently, and the interview was telling in a few ways.

Maybe it's not good for Arizona Wildcat fans to hear the 6-foot-8 power forward begin discussing his list of schools with Kentucky before listing off Arizona and Washington -- then going back to Kentucky.

It's also interesting to hear Gordon speak about each school. He calls Kentucky's program a "business" and it sounds like the structured atmosphere is something he likes. The Archbishop Mitty forward also says that the only con for UK is that it's far from the West Coast.

Then, he explains why he likes Sean Miller's program:

"Arizona, it's a shooting program, Miller is a really good shooting coach. It's a really good slot; they're losing two seniors. They're losing Kevin Parrom and they're also losing Solomon Hill."

He goes on to describe Washington's offense, one that he considers similar to John Wooden's.

Gordon's knowledge of the game definitely makes him that much more of a dynamic recruit for the class of 2013. He added that he's currently focusing on the high school basketball season, and there is no timetable for a decision on where he'll attend college.

Gordon is currently at Massachusetts' Hoophall Classic. MassLive.com has his profile for the tournament here, and they also have one for Arizona commit Rondae Jefferson, who is also at the tournament.
