IHSAA Upholds Eron Gordon Ineligible Ruling

The Indiana High School Athletic Association (IHSAA) has upheld their ruling on the transfer of basketball star Eron Gordon's ineligibility following his transfer to Indianapolis Cathedral from North Central.

Gordon, a 6'2 guard, is the younger brother of NBA player Eric Gordon. He transferred this summer, but the IHSAA ruled that the transfer was for athletic and not academic reasons.

Gordon was ruled ineligible to play for Cathedral for a period of 365 days from his last game at North Central.

Gordon is one of the top class of 2016 backcourt prospects in the country.

Gordon is now expected to submit an appeal to the Indiana Department of Education review panel. If that is unsuccesful, they can then make a case with the state judicial system.
