Morris Twins Reconsider

The Morris Twins are back in the headlines. After re-affirming commitments to Memphis in late July, the pair has opted to open it up for good.

Marcus Morris is's No. 2 ranked post-graduate player. His brother Markieff Morris checks in at No. 4. Until this weekend the twins had been committed to Memphis. According to Marcus, that's no longer the case.

"We will not be attending Memphis," Marcus Morris said. "Coach Calipari and Coach Kellogg are great coaches. I wasn't 100% about (the commitment) and I wouldn't want to be as dedicated to them as they are to me. I need to be 100% before I choose a school."

Morris Twins Now Open

The former Philadelphia (Pa.) Prep Charter standouts diffused rumors about their commitment to Memphis during the summer when on July 22 they told they were firmly committed to the Tigers. Speculation about the pledge continued through the summer before eventually settling down until now.

The twins, both Top 100 prospects a year ago, recently settled in on Pennsauken (N.J.) Apex Academy as their post graduate choice.

What's next for the twins? "Me and my brother are going to sit down and talk about 2-3 schools we want to recruit us. Then we'll give them a call and go from there."

The twins de-commitment means that a pair of the best big men are back on the board. Marcus is the versatile small forward who could see minutes at the power slot. Markieff, once thought be a straight-up center, has developed his skills to the point where he can play both the center and power forward slots.

We expect they'll have many suitors.
