In-State Wing to be a Wolverine?

We've had Grand Blanc (MI) High's <b>K'len Morris</b> on our target list all year, but it wasn't until his stellar play this summer that he moved up near the top of the Class of 06 list. Mention of his strong performance in our <a href="http://michigan.theinsiders.com/2/273347.html">ABCD Day 1 Recap</a> caught some by surprise, but by the time we chimed in with our <a href="http://michigan.theinsiders.com/2/274006.html">final report</a> report a few days later, the word was out.

The Wolverines have deinitely taken notice of Morris' play, and the 6-5 190 lb. wing is definitely interested. We caught up with him recently and he made no secret of what his favorite team is at this time.


How did your season go last year?

"It went all right. We kind of had it tough in the district championships though. We had a point guard that decided not to pass, so that didn't go over too well!"

What were your individual stats and what position did you play on the team?

"I averaged about 14 points and 9 boards. I play the 1, the 2, and the 3, but I started at the 3."

How has your summer been going?

"The summer has been going real well. I'm actually headed to Las Vegas tonight for a tournament my team (The Michigan Mustangs) is playing in."

I heard that you hurt your shoulder down at the Adidas camp, but continued to play in spite of it.

"Yeah, I dislocated my shoulder. I came back and played the next game. I think I was like 4/5 from three-point range. I wasn't in a lot of pain."

For those that haven't seen you play, is there a player in college or the pros that we could compare you to?

"There isn't really anyone I'd compare myself to because there aren't a whole lot of people that can play three positions."

What schools have you been hearing from?

"Obviously Michigan, a little bit from Michigan State, Cleveland State, Butler, and I've been hearing a lot from Missouri lately."

Have any of those schools offered you?

"Just Michigan."

Do you have a favorite at this point?

"Yeah, Michigan."

What Michigan coaches have you spoken to?

"I've spoken to all of them, but I talk to Coach Moore the most."

What are some of the significant factors that will go into your choice?

"I'll be looking at the education, some place close to home, and playing time."

Do you have a timetable for your decision?

"As of now, I'm 95% sure of where I'm going to go, which I want to keep to myself for now (laughing). If everything goes right, I'll probably have my decision made in the first few months of the school year."

Besides heading out to Vegas, what else do you have planned for the summer?

"That is it! The only other thing is I'll be going down to Michigan for an unofficial visit in early August."

GBW will have more on K'len throughout the summer.
