8th grader offered college basketball scholarship

To Catch a Predator Chris Hansen better be on the look out for college basketball coaches. 8th grader Eron Gordon was offered his first college scholarship to Indiana University. But Gordon already has a proven pedigree, his older brother Eric Gordon, who plays for the New Orleans Hornets and spent one year at Indiana University, leading the Big 10 in scoring.

Hoosier head coach Tom Crean offered Gordon the scholarship after seeing him play in the 15-and-under Eric Gordon Central Stars at the IndyBall.com Shootout over the weekend. Gordon is keeping his options open, taking an unofficial visit to Purdue this week. Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Xavier and Wisconsin are also said to be interested in the 6-1 middle schooler.
