Morris To The Big Ten

K'Len Morris, a standout junior prospect from Gland Blanc High, is headed to the Big Ten. On Sunday, the Michigan Mustang opted to stay in-state.

The University of Michigan has its first commitment from a member of the Class of 2006. On Sunday night, K'Len Morris, a 6-foot-5 wing, committed to the Wolverines.

Last season at Gland Blanc (Mich.) High, Morris averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds. We recently put a set of eyes on him at the adidas Super 64 where he was a standout for the Michigan Mustangs.

For Morris, the decision to pick Michigan came down to a pair of factors. "It's real close to home and that way my family and friends can come see me," Morris said. "That was a big thing. The biggest thing was probably the education. You can't go wrong with a Michigan education."

Michigan was the first major program to offer Morris – others would have followed – and his allegiances have always seemed to be with the Maize and Blue.

"I've always been somewhat of a Michigan fan but as i got more involved with basketball and aware of the recruiting, Michigan was definitely the place to go. I like to run a lot and Coach Amaker plays that run and gun style. He let's you make mistakes and won't turn his back on you. Coach Amaker understands what I like to do."

Morris said the Wolverines recruited him to play the point, shooting guard and small forward positions.
