With a pair of visits to DePaul's Lincoln Park campus on tap, the fall recruiting period is getting hot going into the November signing period. The Blue Demons will host D.C. point guard Brandon Young beginning on Friday. Starting on Sunday, Moses Morgan, a 6-5 wing from Nevada, will visit the Windy City.
Brandon Young is considered the 29th ranked point guard in the nation by Scout.com. The 6-3, 175 lb. guard from Edison-Friendship school in Washington, D.C. played his AAU ball for Team Takeover, D.C. during the summer months.
Young is coming off an unofficial visit to Massachusetts last weekend. He also recently took an unofficial visit to Georgetown over Labor Day weekend and visited Marquette for their elite camp last month.
Brandon recited his top three favorites as DePaul, Marquette, and UMass. He does not have any additional visits at this time, but is considering possible visits to Marquette or South Florida in the near future.
Young recently had in-home visits with Central Florida, DePaul, Marquette, Massachusetts, and South Florida.
"It was great," Young said of the visits. "My grandmother, my uncle, the family got to see the college coaches that we see on TV."
Brandon describes himself as a point guard who prefers an uptempo style of play with a pass-first mentality. "I'm looking to where I can push the ball up and down, and play tough defense, and where they have a good coach," said Young.
Young feels that he has what it takes to make it in the Big East. "I could see myself in the Big East. They've got a lot of tough guard play."
Moses Morgan is a 6-5 swingman from Palo Verde High School in Las Vegas, Nevada. Morgan hails from the same ICAN All-Stars AAU program as DePaul sophomore Krys Faber and incoming freshman Tony Freeland.
Moses is the son of Winston Morgan, who played for Indiana coach Bob Knight in the 1980's.
Morgan is fresh off an unofficial visit to Indiana. He is also receiving interest from Clemson and Minnesota, but has no further visits scheduled at this time.
As a junior, Morgan averaged 17 points and 7.5 rebounds as he led his high school team to the Nevada Class 4A state championship game and a record of 24-6.
Moses recently had in-home visits with DePaul coach Jerry Wainwright and Minnesota coach Tubby Smith.
"It went real well," Morgan said of the DePaul visit. "We talked about their program and how they play."
Playing in the Big East is a big attraction for Morgan. "It's one of the biggest conferences in college basketball," Moses said. "I thought that if I go there and do what I do, I can turn that team around. I think that would be real big for me. I can be real productive there. That would be a real good situation for me."
