Morgan Trims To Six

Maverick Morgan has narrowed his list to six schools. He talks with about his timetable.

Ahead of his Big Ten tour next week, Springboro (OH) native Maverick Morgan has trimmed his list to six schools: Dayton, Xavier, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Vanderbilt.

Morgan, a six-foot-ten big man who runs with Martin's Wolverines on the AAU circuit, is a strong post presence in an otherwise weak 2013 class of bigs.

He has already made several stops at Xavier and Dayton and took a visit to Vanderbilt recently as well. Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Illinois are all on the docket for June 12-15.

Morgan said that playing time will be a "huge factor" in his decision, which would figure to give the Atlantic 10 schools an advantage in the race.

However he insisted that if he fits in well at a Big Ten school, then that could end up being his final choice as well.

One thing is certain: a decision is coming soon. Morgan told that he plans on deciding within the next two weeks, so he can get focused on his senior season.

"I'm just excited," Morgan said. "There aren't any schools that I'm interested in that haven't come after me. I feel very content with how the process has gone and am about ready to make a decision."
