Morrow ready for visit

Recruiting is really picking up for Ed Morrow who is about to make a Big Ten visit.

Three-star power forward Edward Morrow is someone who had a tremendous high school season and could be working his way to a spot in the top 100. Now on the AAU circuit with the Mac Irvin Fire, Morrow is again showing what he is capable of, and the Chicago (Ill) Simeon product is set to make a visit to his parents alma mater this week.

For the first time in his high school career, Morrow didn't end the season with a state title, but overall he is still happy with how things went.

"It was a great season," said Morrow. "I thought I had a pretty solid season. There were some things I could work on and also some things our team could have done better to get a state title, but overall it was a good season."

Before the year Morrow heard the doubters who said he wasn't skilled enough or tall enough, but the 6-foot-7 power forward feels he answered some of those questions.

"The whole thing was people telling me what I couldn't do, and I feel like I had to prove everybody wrong," explained Morrow. "It was a big role for me to fill in for the guys who left, so I knew I had to pick it up this year."

Coming up this week Morrow will make a visit to Nebraska. The Cornhuskers are recruiting him very hard, and both of his parents attended the Big Ten school.

About the visit and Nebraska in general, Morrow said, "It is a great program with a great coach in Tim Miles. He was the coach of the year in the Big Ten. I am just looking for a program I would be happy at, and that is what I want to see when I go down there."

Also several other schools have really picked up the recruiting efforts with Morrow lately.

"West Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wichita State, Iowa, Iowa State, Massachusetts, and Minnesota are also showing me a lot of interest," said Morrow.

One program that has especially made him a priority is West Virginia. They saw him during the regular season, and have turned up the intensity on the recruiting trail.

"I don't know a lot about them, they just started recruiting me, but they really like my game and they think I could fit real well with what they do," said Morrow of the Mountaineers.

For now Morrow says he has no specific timeframe for a decision, and there is no question that he is one of the hottest commodities at power forward in the Midwest.
