Miami Norland four-star tight end Richard Gordon knows today is the first day that college coaches can call him, but he’s his head and his heart focused on something else more important.
“I haven’t been playing a lot so far this year,” Gordon, who 6-foot-4, 242-pounds and ranked as the nation’s No. 4 tight end, said. “I just came from the doctor. They said my blood pressure it too high, so they gave me a heart examination.
“I think it’s going to be all right, but it’s better safe than sorry. I’m glad they found it now, instead of me being out there on football field and something bad is happening.”
Gordon said he expects the news to be good once he gets the results from the doctor, which means he’ll get to be back in action – until then recruiting and scholarship offers from Alabama, Florida, Florida State, Nebraska, N.C. State and Ohio State will have to wait.
“I’ll talk to the coaches that will call me,” he said. “But I’m pretty focused on something else more important.”
