Seton Hall target Eron Gordon sets decision date

Connect with SHUHoops.com:

Indianapolis Cathedral (In.) senior guard Eron Gordon will officially announce his college destination on Monday with Seton Hall among the finalists.

Long-time recruiters of the combo guard, Seton Hall had Gordon on campus in October for an official visit a month after associate head coach Shaheen Holloway flew out to Indiana to scout him.

With an announcement set for 7:30 on Monday, Texas Tech, Maryland and Missouri are the other three official finalists.

Seton Hall is by far the senior school recruiting the scoring guard as I’ve never seen Texas Tech or Maryland mentioned before while Missouri had a visit planned a couple weeks ago that was eventually scrapped.

I’ve been told by one neutral source that Seton Hall are strong favorites to secure Eron’s services. All but one analyst on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball has predicted the Pirates to pick up a commitment.

Schools like Marquette and Butler were involved before allegedly backing off while Memphis and Nevada received visits last fall.

The Hall’s interest in Gordon gained steam shortly after local product Bryce Aiken pledged to Harvard late last summer and only continued to grow with the increasingly likely departure of Isaiah Whitehead to the NBA and point guard Jevon Thomas’ ineligibility until December due to failure to complete the spring semester.

Though Seton Hall is currently without scholarships and is also in the running for Brewster Academy (N.H.) post forward Taurean Thompson, who is also considering Michigan State and Syracuse, they are expected to lose at least two scholarship players not named Isaiah this off-season.

Eron is the younger brother of New Orleans Pelican guard Eric (you can see the resemblance) and is rated 135th by Rivals, 144th by 247Sports.com and a three-star prospect by both Scout and ESPN. You can check out Eron’s game in his most recent highlight clip here.
