Josh Gordon, the 6-foot-4, 215-pound two-star wide receiver from Lamar High School in Houston, Texas, publicly committed to Baylor earlier today.
“I went with Baylor today,” Gordon said. “They’ve been with me the longest, recruited me the hardest...and me and my coach have a great relationship with everyone there. They’ve got great, new facilities and I’m feeling really good about my choice. I decided not to visit Texas A&M next weekend (Jan. 30).”
Gordon, Scout.com’s No. 224 wide receiver, already officially visited Baylor on Dec. 12 and never took any other trips. Missouri, Texas Tech and A&M were his other visit considerations but only the Aggies are still currently recruiting him.
I wasn’t looking at Missouri anymore,” Gordon said. “It was down to Baylor and A&M. A&M is only about an hour away and I know several guys on the team already (including offensive lineman Leroy Chevalier). I’m close to Leroy and a couple other guys on the team. I like how it’s a family atmosphere over there.”
Despite his relationship with these Aggie players and the proximity of College Station, Baylor became the team to beat after Gordon’s official trip to Waco in December.
Gordon says he plans to major in business management and reports a 2.5 core GPA and a 21 ACT.
