Gordon saga continues for IU
It was obvious that Illinois was watching Eric Gordon, a 6-3 guard from North Central High in Indianapolis who verbally committed to the Illini last November. The Illini also were watching Gordon's summer league teammate, Derrick Rose, the 6-2 point guard from Simeon Vocational High in Chicago.
You can't assume Meyer was there principally to watch Gordon, but it's not a reach. There is nothing wrong with a school evaluating a player who has verbally committed, but for weeks the perception has been that Indiana is openly recruiting Gordon despite his verbal commitment to Illinois.
