SEC Schools Vying For Morris

LITHONIA – Miller Grove small forward Brandon Morris currently has three SEC schools at the top of his list.

"I'm definitely looking at Florida, Georgia and Auburn," the 6-foot-7, 190-pound Morris said recently. "They're my top three right now."

Morris, who played for the Southern Kings on the AAU circuit last summer, says he enjoys the uptempo style of play in the SEC.

Here's what he had to say about each school in his top three:

Auburn: "Auburn has a real good coach. They call me a whole lot and send me a bunch of letters and stuff. They've got a new gym now, and it's a really great facility."

Georgia: "It's right here at home. My mom really likes Georgia—my mom and my uncle. They really think I should go to Georgia since it's close to home and the way coach Mark Fox is. They really like coach Fox."

"I honestly don't know what it is exactly that my mom sees in Georgia," he continued. "I think she doesn't want me going off too far. Coach Fox is definitely calling my mom."

Florida: "They've got a great coach. Billy Donovan is a great man. I like how he plays kids. I like how they play hard. They're a championship team, kind of like what we are here (at Miller Grove)."

Morris visited Georgia when the Bulldogs upset Kentucky in early January.

"They played really hard. They came up with a big win—a real big win against Kentucky," he said.

So far, attempts to schedule a visit to Florida have been unsuccessful. But Morris says a trip to Gainesville will be on the agenda soon.

For now, Morris is a key component in Miller Grove's attempt to win a third consecutive state AAAA title.

"I like to attack," he said. "I attack pretty well. I'm developing my jump shot, and once I get that I'll be unstoppable. The range on my jumper; once that improves I'll be good to go."
