Aaron Gordon not expected to pick UW

Thought I’d pass along a few more links on Aaron Gordon.

Here’s our story for today, which updates the situation at Washington. Sources close to the team say the coaching staff was told the five-star prospect will not choose the Huskies. Those sources didn’t say which team he was going to pick at approximately 9:30 a.m. PT Tuesday during media day at the McDonald’s All-American game in Chicago.

Folks in Kentucky would also be surprised if Gordon were to select the Wildcats, which has assembled a 2013 class that includes six McDonald’s All-Americans. It’s being heralded as perhaps the greatest recruiting class ever.

A story on the Bleacher Report estimates Washington has a 50 percent chance of landing Gordon, which is the highest of any other suitor.

However, it appears as if Arizona is the favorite just ahead of Oregon.

Here’s a link to Gordon’s twitter account.

AROUND THE PAC-12:

Dan Bernstein a columnist at CBSChicago.com has an old beef with new UCLA coach Steve Alford that stems from his questionable handling of a former player’s legal issues.

— Alford signed a 10-year extension with New Mexico that lasted 10 days before he agreed to coach UCLA.

— Arizona State freshman Jahii Carson formally asked the NBA for a draft evaluation.
