Mississippi State assistant coach Phil Cunningham watched Jamont Gordon, the No. 9 player in the Rivals100 for the class of 2005, play two Mondays ago. He must have liked what he saw because head coach Rick Stansbury made the trip to Nashville this past Monday night to watch the 6-foot-4, 215-pound combo guard play.
Despite sitting out much of the first half with foul trouble, Gordon finished with 17 points, including 3 three pointers, 11 rebounds, 5 assists, and a pair of blocks and steals, leading Glencliff to a 19 point victory.
On March 18th in the first round of the state tournament, Gordon will face the Delk twins of Jackson Northside. The Delks are the nephews of Dallas Maverick guard Tony Delk.
Gordon was scheduled to take an unofficial visit to Kentucky last Sunday for the Florida game. He could not make the trip, however, because of a practice conflict.
More than likely, this will be Gordon’s last year with Glencliff as he is in the process of applying to Oak Hill Academy.
Gordon is also receiving heavy interest from Kansas, Louisville, Tennessee, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Memphis.
