Aaron Gordon will take in the Red-Blue Game this weekend, but the Wildcats will likely have to be patient with him afterward.

Unlike Kaleb Tarczewski, who chose the Wildcats a year ago after attending the celebratory scrimmage event, Gordon still plans to visit Kentucky and will wait until spring to make a decision, according to Tim Kennedy, his coach at Mitty High School in San Jose, Calif.

"I’m pretty sure he wants to wait," Kennedy said today. "He’s strayed true to the process so far and doesn’t change. I’ll be surprised if he says, `You know what? Let's make a decision.' He's pretty mature and even-keeled."

Gordon has already visited California (unofficially), Washington, Oregon and Kansas. He will visit UA this weekend and is then expected to visit Kentucky sometime afterward; Kennedy said a date has not yet been set.

While Tarczewski was always expected to make a decision last fall, the heavy early favorite was Kansas. Tarczewski committed to UA after visiting the Red-Blue Game along with three other (then committed) UA recruits: Grant Jerrett, Gabe York and Brandon Ashley.

This year, UA commits Elliott Pitts and Rondae Jefferson are scheduled to attend, along with several 2014 targets such as Justise Winslow and Parker Jackson-Cartwright, and 2015 standout guard Isaiah Briscoe.
