Mitchell says Gordon will announce decision within 24 hours

North Central basketball coach Doug Mitchell spoke with Eric Gordon Jr.’s family Friday morning and the family said Gordon Jr. had told coaches at both Indiana and Illinois of his final college decision Thursday night.

Mitchell, who is Gordon’s high school coach, said Gordon and his family will be at Hoosier Hysteria in Bloomington tonight and Gordon Jr. “will make an announcement within 24 hours.”

Mitchell said he couldn’t say whether Gordon will pick Indiana or Illinois, or whether the announcement will be made at Hoosier Hysteria tonight.

Our efforts to reach Eric Gordon Sr. today have been unsuccessful. We will provide further information on this situation as we receive it. We will also provide live updates from Hoosier Hysteria tonight on the Gordon situation.
