CHICAGO – Maybe he’s a small forward, maybe not.

Maybe it really doesn’t matter.

As his MVP performance in Wednesday’s McDonald’s All American Game demonstrated, Aaron Gordon is going to get on the floor for the Arizona Wildcats next season no matter what.

A day before he collected 24 points and eight rebounds for the West team, the 6-foot-8, 215-pound Gordon said he saw himself as an “X factor” who played heavily at small forward for the Wildcats.

That sounds like a good fit in theory since the Wildcats already expect to have five returnees for the two post spots in Kaleb Tarczewski, Brandon Ashley, Grant Jerrett, Angelo Chol and Matt Korcheck – while they are expected to lose small forwards Solomon Hill and Kevin Parrom.
