Morrow Trips To USC; Plans More Visits

Darius Morrow took an official visit to South Carolina this past weekend and he gave the trip high marks. Next up is Penn State in mid-October.

Darius Morrow is in the middle of the recruiting process. He's already developed a list of favorites and he's started taking official visits.

The 6-foot-9, 260-pound big man took a trip to South Carolina this past weekend and got the red carpet treatment, as he toured the campus, hung out with the players and took in the football game.

"When I first got there I had lunch with the players and then I watched them practice," Morrow said. "We went out to dinner after practice. I also met with all the academic advisors and professors during the day."

"Saturday morning I played pick up with the team and then we went to the football game. After the football game I spent some time with my family riding around town. Then I went to dinner and said my good-byes to everybody and I talked to Coach Odom for a while."

The Decatur (Ga.) Columbia standout said he has a "great relationship" with USC's staff, but would like to take a few more visits before he makes his college decision.

To go with South Carolina, Morrow's list also includes Fordham, Penn State, Cincinnati and East Carolina. His next visit will be to Penn State on October 12th.

Morrow, who plans to sign in the early signing period, said there's a good possibility that he could set up two more visits following the trip to Penn State.

"That might not be the last one," he said. "I have Cincinnati and East Carolina, but we haven't made concrete dates yet though."
