It has been a huge July for Darryl Morsell. The highly athletic scoring guard has seen his offer list explode, and with that more and more coaches are taking notice. On Wednesday night on a big stage at The Eight, Morsell had a dominant second half and put himself firmly in the mix for a huge bump in the next batch of rankings.
“Right now I am just enjoying everything,” said Morsell. “I have gotten new offers and new interest and I am taking it all in. It is a blessing.”
On the recruiting side of things, a large contingent of coaches are now tracking Morsell’s every move.
“Recently I got offers from Notre Dame, Marquette, Cincinnati, Maryland, West Virginia, Kansas State, Virginia Tech, and some others,” said Morsell.
One school that offered a while ago is Dayton, and recently Morsell visited the campus and came away impressed.
“The Dayton visit went real well,” said Morsell. “Dayton wants me to come in and have a big impact right away. Coach (Archie) Miller is a good coach and is good at developing guards. They have been telling me how they can develop me and help me get better.”
One of Morsell’s more recent offers came from Maryland, and getting the Terrapins offer was huge.
“It was big to get that offer,” said Morsell. “That is my hometown school and I grew up watching them a lot, so it was great to get that offer.”
Notre Dame boss Mike Brey was there to watch Morsell on Wednesday night, and he says the offer from the Irish was a big one for him.
“It was big to get the Notre Dame offer,” explained Morsell. “I go to Mt. St. Joe’s and Eric Atkins went there. It was just a blessing to hear from them.”
For now Morsell says he has no visits planned, but he does expect to take several trips at the beginning of August to the schools showing him a lot of interest.
