Gordon and Rose dine with IU staff

At 8:15 p.m. Friday, Eric Gordon and Derrick Rose are right now eating dinner with Kelvin Sampson, Indiana’s assistant coaches and Hoosier players D.J. White and Rod Wilmont.

The reports today that Gordon and Rose would be in Bloomington and dine at Yogi’s Grill and Bar turned out to be correct.

Half an hour ago, diners at the restaurant cheered as Sampson walked in followed by Rose and Gordon. They made no comment as they walked swiftly to a table in the back room at Yogi’s, but the dinner meeting appeared to confirm the persistent rumors that Gordon is interested in playing at IU, despite his verbal commitment to Illinois.

More details to follow.
