Oklahoma Up Next
Lakewood 6-4 senior small forward Marcus Morrison visited Fresno State last month. "It was good," Morrison said. "I liked coach Tark and he was pretty cool. I liked the city and the surroundings."
Fresno State was just the first in what should prove to be a series of official visits for the athletic Morrison. In fact, he's going to visit Oklahoma the weekend of Feb. 23.
Morrison says he also might trip to UMass. Auburn is recruiting him as well, in addition to Iowa and Boston College, which recently began, calling him.
Part of Morrison's rise took place during the City of Palms event. Down in Fort Myers, he helped orchestrate a number of upsets of national proportions for Lakewood, including one against Oakland Tech and Leon Powe. "We didn't even think of it as an upset. It was pretty big but we didn't know they were ranked. We really want to beat Kathleen." Rashad Anderson and Kathleen defeated Lakewood in the December Hooters event and Morrison wants revenge.
