UK still on Morris twins' radar

The Morris twins have perhaps a tough decision ahead of themselves. Marcus and Markieff are considered among the best prospects in the 2008 class. They prefer making a decision this year.

The Morris twins have perhaps a tough decision ahead of themselves. Marcus and Markieff are considered among the best prospects in the 2008 class. They prefer making a decision this year.

But a family illness prevented the Morris twins from taking a visit to Kentucky this past weekend. "Everything seems to be okay now," said their head coach, Dan Brinkley of Prep Charter High School in Philadelphia, Penn. "But they didn't know it would be that way until it was too late to take the trip."

Marcus, 6-foot-8, and Markieff, 6-foot-9, are considered high division one players. "They still like Memphis, LaSalle, and Kentucky," said Brinkley. "They could make a decision this week. They may not. They have to discuss it with their family in what they wish to do."

The Morris twins have visited Memphis and LaSalle. The planned trip to Kentucky could still take place. But it wouldn't happen until after the signing period is over. The Morris twins still plan on prepping next season. They turned 17-years-old recently and feel the extra year on the prep level would help them physically, emotionally and competitively.

"If they do decide to make a decision, Kentucky is still part of the decision," said Brinkley, despite the Morris twins not having been to Lexington for a visit. "But they should have a better idea of what they want to do in the next two days."

Brinkley said as of the posting of this story, there wasn't a leader, only three schools that each of them feels have advantages and disadvantages. "I couldn't say what they will do," Brinkley said. "But I can say they will discuss it with their family and determine what the next step will be."
