Waiting on Ole' Blue

As a youngster, Josh Gordon followed Michigan and he says the Wolverines remain his top choice now - although they haven't offered him yet. "If Michigan offered me I'll go ahead and commit," Gordon said. "It would be a great choice for me and I really want to go there. Michigan came to my school during the spring, but I really haven't been in too much contact with them since then..."

Josh Gordon, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound two-star wide receiver from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas, says that recently, things have been slow recruiting-wise…but thinks things will pick up once his season starts.

"Things have been slow, but the coaches have all been on vacation and stuff," Gordon said. "I'm expecting to be hearing from a lot more programs once school starts and once more teams can seem me play."

Gordon's first game is on September 5 versus Marshall High School from Ft. Bend, Texas.

As a youngster, Gordon followed Michigan and he says the Wolverines are still his top choice now although they haven't offered him yet. "If Michigan offered me I'll go ahead and commit," he said. "It would be a great choice for me and I really want to go there."

A Michigan offer at this point, however, seems like a longshot. "Michigan came to my school during the spring, but I really haven't been in too much contact with them since then," he said. "They still send mail though and hopefully they'll come out to see one of my games."

Nevertheless, the Wolverines continue to lead solidly over Missouri, Texas A&M and Nebraska. The Tigers, Aggies and Huskers have offered. Gordon also has offers from Baylor and Houston.

"Missouri has a great offense," he said. "They had a great team last year and I think they are gonna stay on top for a while. They are a well-rounded program with great coaches.

"I haven't talked to any of the coaches at Nebraska yet, so I don't know too much about them," Gordon admitted. "They have great tradition and history and they are definitely a school I plan to learn more about during the year."

The only camp that Gordon attended during the summer was A&M's. "It's close to home and I like their tradition," he said. "I know a few guys there already and have a few friends committed there too (including teammate/three-star running back Kalvin Guyton).

"I also have a good relationship with their coaches," Gordon said. "They have a lot of good experience and think the team is on the rise. I also think I would fit in well with their offense."

Gordon is Scout.com's No. 200 wide receiver in the country.

He says he plans to major in business management and reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 21 ACT.
