The Kansas coach travels to California for a home visit with the No. 5 recruit in the country on Tuesday.

Kansas coach Bill Self will be in San Jose on Tuesday for a visit with Aaron Gordon, the No. 5 player in the country.

Gordon, a 6'8 small forward, has reportedly narrowed his list down to six schools: Kansas, Arizona, Washington, Kentucky, Cal and Oregon.

In an interview with Zagsblog.com, Tim Kennedy, Gordon's high school coach, said that his star recruit isn't very familiar with the Jayhawks program:

"Just for the fact he's never been out there," Kennedy told Zagsblog.com. "But it's Kansas, kind of like a Kentucky thing where it's always a top program so he's interested and he has a connection knowing the assistant (Kurtis Townsend) for a little while."

The Jayhawks and the Wildcats are the only programs still in the hunt for Gordon who aren't on the West Coast, which could be a big hurdle for Self if Gordon wants to stay closer to home.
