10.11.17 - Committed to Indiana out of John A. Logan (IL). 

2.23.16 - Commits to John A. Logan.

5.16.15 - Currently ranked No. 88 in Illinois’ 2016 class. Athletic, highly projectable 6-foot-4, 190-pound frame, long limbs, baby-faced, appears to be far from physical peak. Athletic and clean arm action, over-the-top slot, stays tall and works downhill well. Opens front side early, creating some arm-side run when extended. Has been sidelined with elbow tenderness; only thrown 11 innings prior to start this spring. Fastball sat 84-86 in the first two innings, and topped at 89 once a pitch after he was denied a strikeout on a sharp 69-mph curveball that presumably buckled the umpire.  In the fourth and fifth he pitched in the 82-85 range. Threw high-volume of strikes with fastball. As the game progressed, he threw his curveball with more confidence – and effectiveness. Flashed a handful of breaking balls with sharp 11/5 bite in the 68-69 range; he threw one a tick harder at 71 mph that showed potential of being a true swing-and-miss pitch in the future. Only flashed a few changeups in the 73-74 range.  For the game against Peoria Notre Dame, he threw a five-inning no-hitter; he struck out three and walked two. Overall, it looks like Gordon is just beginning to scratch the surface of his potential. As he continues to fill into his frame and gets more experience, he has the potential to throw significantly harder in the future. High-follow prospect in the 2016 class.
