Gordon averaged 9.8 points, 4.9 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game last season as a redshirt junior. He’ll join a Seton Hall team that is desperate for guards.
Seton Hall’s leading scorer Sterling Gibbs announced he’ll transfer to UConn. Guard Jared Sina announced his intention to transfer in February.
Gordon is the first openly-gay player in Division I men’s basketball history.
