Morris Picks Up Offers

Darius Morris put together a good summer and the talented point guard is picking up interest. Recently two head coaches started personally recruiting him.

The class of 2009 has a pretty good crop of point guards and one of the best lead men on the west coast is Darius Morris. The 6-foot-3 guard grabbed the attention of college coaches this summer and interest is starting to pick up.

Thus far Morris has received heavy interest from Michigan, Washington State, Notre Dame, Washington and Texas. Of the schools involved the Cougars and Wolverines are the two that have stepped up with scholarship offers.

"Coach Bennett and Coach Beilein are both recruiting me themselves," Morris, who is a standout at Los Angeles (Calif.) Windward School, said. "There are a lot of colleges calling. I just like the experience right now."

In a class where there are quite a few solid point guards on the west coast, Morris is getting a lot of interest and certainly could make a run at the 2009 Top 100 when it is all said and done.

This past summer, Morris didn't play his natural position, as he played alongside the best point guard in the 2008 class, Brandon Jennings on Belmont Shore. Despite playing out of position, Morris showed that he can run a team and knock down deep jumpers.

With his ability to play both guard spots, Morris has attracted a bunch of attention, but at this point he's still not in any rush to make a decision.

"I'm not in a rush to make a decision," Morris said. "I'm just taking it all in because I'm interested in all the schools. I'm going to really keep doing my homework on each program and figure out which is the best for me."
