INDIANAPOLIS – Eron Gordon made news during the high school basketball offseason by announcing his transfer to Cathedral High School from North Central.
Now he’s made even more news due to the response by the IHSAA to that move in schools.
On Friday, Fox 59 confirmed that the guard has been ruled ineligible by IHSAA due to a violation of the association’s transfer rules. Commissioner Bobby Cox said via email that Gordon’s parents have filed a written appeal to the decision and that a date for a hearing on the issue has yet to be set.
The story was first reported by Kyle Neddenriep of the Indianapolis Star.
Gordon is considered one of the top prospects in the Class of 2016 and has received attention from a number of major programs across the county. He comes from a long line of well known basketball players in the state as his brother Eric played at Indiana and is now with the New Orleans Pelicans.
His brother Evan played at Arizona State and Indiana, completing his college basketball career with the Hoosiers last March.
Eron Gordon was a two-year starter with the Panthers.
