Last week it was reported that Baylor wide receiver Josh Gordon had left the program after being suspended indefinitely in July for violating team rules. This after an arrest last October in which police found Gordon in his car outside a Taco Bell with marijuana. At the time it was also reported that Gordon could be headed to Utah.

Well, it seems Gordon is no longer headed toward Utah, as he is already there and was practicing with his new teammates on Wednesday.

"We did our homework. We did our research. We talked to many, many coaches and people associated with Josh," Utah coach Kyle Whittingham told the Deseret News. "We felt that he deserves a second chance and we're going to give him that.

"He's here. He's a very, very talented kid, that's obvious." 

Of course, since Gordon is a transfer, he'll have to sit out the 2011 season. He is still able to practice with the team and Whittingham said he'll compete for a starting job next spring. 

Gordon caught 42 passes for 714 yards and 7 touchdowns for Baylor in 2010.
