Morrow talks visits

Ed Morrow gives an update on his visit to Iowa, and his upcoming official to Nebraska.

Three-star power forward Ed Morrow is one of the toughest and high motor players in the country. The Chicago (Ill.) Simeon star is in the middle of the visit process, and is taking in some Big Ten schools.

At 6-foot-7 and 210 pounds, Morrow might not possess the prototype size for a power forward, but he does have a motor that is nearly unmatched. Add in good athleticism and long arms, and Morrow is as productive as any player at his position around.

This past weekend Morrow made a visit to Iowa, and he was very impressed with what he saw.

“I wasn’t really sure what to expect at Iowa,” explained Morrow. “I really liked it though, it wasn’t what I was really expected when I thought of Iowa. The campus was nice, they have real good facilities, and I really enjoyed meeting the team.”

One of the highlights of the trip for Morrow was talking to and getting to know the Iowa coaching staff.

“I think I would fit in well at Iowa,” said Morrow. “They like to play fast and that is how I play, and with the development of Fran McCaffery and his staff I think I could really develop there.”

Up next for Morrow is a trip to Nebraska. Morrow was born in Nebraska and has visited the school unofficially in the past, but the official trip is the next step.

“I am just looking forward to seeing Nebraska in a more official way,” said Morrow. “In my previous visits I saw things unofficially, but this official visit will give me a better chance to see the entire school and the system, and just how I would really fit in with the entire program.”

While other schools such as Minnesota, Creighton, Hawaii, Virginia Tech, and SMU are all involved with Morrow, he says that he and his family haven’t set up any more visits.

“After I make this visit I will sit down with my family and determine what is next for me in the recruiting process,” said Morrow. “I don’t have any other visits set up, so we will talk about that after I get back from Nebraska.”

Morrow is a three-star prospect, and one of the best remaining uncommitted players from the state of Illinois.
