A College Basketball Coach Already Offered Eric Gordon's 14-Year-Old Brother a Scholarship

It's good to be the brother of an NBA star. Just ask Eron Gordon, the 14-year-old brother of New Orleans Hornets point guard Eric Gordon. On Sunday night, he received his first official college basketball scholarship offer from Indiana University…and he hasn't even played in his first high school game yet.

That's right. Eron is only in the eighth grade and, at 6'1", he's still growing and a work in progress. But, thanks to his great genes, his AAU resume, and his brother's ties to the university—Eric went to IU and played for the Hoosiers during the 2007-08 season—he's already got a scholarship offer. More offers could be on the way, too, with Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State, Xavier, and Wisconsin also reportedly keeping a close eye on him.

See you in the NBA in five years, bro.
