This is just a quick update not about Errick Peck, but about another one-year transfer looking to play closer to his Indianapolis home. Evan Gordon, the younger brother of Eric Gordon and older brother of 2016 high priority target Eron Gordon, is considering Purdue, Indiana, and Butler after graduating from Arizona State. It looks like Purdue may be out of the running:
I met with #iubb and the coaching staff and had a great visit, and learned about what the school has to offer academically. Wow hard to beat— Evan Gordon (@EvanGordon10) May 13, 2013
Meet with Butler University on Tuesday another great opportunity this is going to be hard to decide butler bball is another great program— Evan Gordon (@EvanGordon10) May 13, 2013
Tough decision ahead can't beat Butler University style of play and the Master Program oh yeah did I forget the Big East hmmmmmm tough— Evan Gordon (@EvanGordon10) May 14, 2013
I'm looking for a Masters Program that helps me become a GM, college or NBA coach and or a trainer both schools have a prestigious programs— Evan Gordon (@EvanGordon10) May 14, 2013
So there you have it. Over a series of tweets it looks like the three has been narrowed down to two in Butler and Indiana. Naturally, this has IU fans feeling their oats:
Love that Evan Gordon is ignoring the attention Purdue is giving him. He knows there's only one true basketball school in this state. #IUBB— HomeGrown Hoosier (@HomeGrown_IUBB) May 12, 2013
Yeah, and that school is Butler, who has had far more national success of late than anyone else in the state.
Whatever he chooses, I wish him well. It seems like he is a bright young man who wants to use this opportunity to get a head start on a graduate degree with a career goal in mind. That is far more important than any basketball games and I cannot criticize that at all.
