After scoring 32 points and grabbing 16 rebounds in Glencliff High School’s victory over Illinois 2005 commitment David Palmer’s Antioch squad in Nashville, Jamont Gordon declared a new top three school list and a new favorite school.
“Kentucky has been calling my coach,” said Gordon, the No. 25 player in the Rivals75 for the class of 2005. “That is my favorite college team.”
Besides Kentucky, Kansas has now joined Tennessee as the 6-foot-4, 215-pound combo guard’s top three school list. Kentucky and Kansas displaced Memphis and Louisville in Gordon’s top three.
“There was a chance Kansas was going to be here tonight, but I don’t think they made it,” said the soft spoken and humble Gordon.
A close friend of the Gordon family also told RivalsHoops.com that Assistant Coach Reggie Hanson from Kentucky wanted very badly to watch Gordon play this week, but Tuesday nights game was the only game for Glencliff this week and Kentucky played Alabama on the same night. Kentucky also wanted Gordon to visit this past weekend, but Gordon was unable to make the trip.
Kentucky is now trying to get Gordon, 2005 prospect Tyler Smith, and 2006 prospect Brandon Wright to visit Lexington on the same weekend.
Gordon still has not settled on an AAU team for this summer. His team of last summer The Charles Davis Foundation, the Tennessee Travelers, and the Southeast Pump & Run are all vying for Gordon’s services this summer. Gordon did say that he plans to attend the Nike Camp this summer.
Gordon is also waiting to see if he is accepted by Oak Hill for his senior season. If a spot at Oak Hill does not work out, Gordon is looking at Mt. Zion Academy.
Gordon primarily played the point guard position for Glencliff as they won their 20th game of the season, where he hit 3 three pointers, had 5 steals, and 5 assists.
The 6-foot-8 Palmer scored 12 points and grabbed 2 rebounds.
Look for Gordon to rise and Palmer to slide in the soon to be updated and expanded ranking for the class of 2005.
