Three in line for visits

Four-star wing Carlos Morris has three schools that have emerged as leaders in his recruitment.

One of the most versatile wings in the country is Carlos Morris. Morris stars at Jacksonville (FL) Arlington Country Day, and had a big summer with the Team DH Warriors. At 6-foot-6 Morris can play multiple positions and now three schools are standing out in his recruitment.

"This spring I played better, but I think I had a good summer as well," said Morris of his AAU season. "I played pretty well."

All summer long coaches were tracking Morris, and now three have emerged from the pack as teams to beat.

"Right now I am at home visiting with my mom, but when I get back to Jacksonville I will set up visits with South Carolina, Cincinnati, and Arkansas," explained Morris. "Those are the three schools recruiting me the hardest right now, and South Carolina really stands out."

South Carolina has been the school recruiting Morris for the longest, and that has them firmly on the list.

"They have just been on me harder than everybody else," Morris explained. "They have always been there since the beginning and that means a lot."

When it comes to the Bearcats, they have a relationship with Arlington Country Day Head Coach Rex Morgan, and have transitioned that into a strong bond with Morris.

"Coach Larry (Davis) has been recruiting me hard as soon as I got to ACD," Morris explained of Cincinnati. "I have a good relationship with those guys."

The Arkansas Razorbacks style of play is one thing that really stands out for Morris.

"With Arkansas coach T.J. (Cleveland) has been recruiting me and he is a good dude," Morris explained. "Also they are a school that really gets up and down. I like their system."

When on the visits Morris is going to be taking a close look at not only the basketball, but the academic system as well.

"Academics are first for me, and basketball wise I just want to see if I get along with the coaches and the players and see if I like the area," said Morris.

In terms of making a decision, Morris feels it will definitely come after he makes his official visits. Right now the plan is for him to make his commitment near the beginning of November with his entire family by his side.

Even though Morris finished just outside the top 100, he is still viewed as a four-star prospect and is the No. 18 shooting guard in the country.
