"Christian is committing to Rutgers," AAU coach Lawrence McGuggins said. "I think it had to do with the assistant coaches. They were on top of their game as far as recruitment."
Morris, a native of New York, turned in one of best recent performances at the June NBA Camp and his AAU coach indicated he's been on a good run lately.
"He made tremendous strides," McGuggins said. "A lot of the schools really began to fall in love with him and he lost weight. He's on a good roll. He'll continue to do and that won't stop. I think Rutgers isn't a bad situation. He'll go right in and play and he'll work hard."
Morris joins Top 100 wing Mike Rosario as the two Rutgers commitments from the Class of 2008 at this stage.
