Morrow talks about return trip to Lincoln

Nebraska basketball 2015 legacy recruit Edward Morrow was impressed by the new culture surrounding hoops in Lincoln.

After moving away for nearly a half of a decade, legacy 2015 power forward recruit Edward Morrow was impressed by the changes in Lincoln toward Nebraska basketball.

Taking an unofficial visit during spring game football weekend, Morrow (6-foot-7) talked with Big Red Report about the experience.

"I don't know if you know this, but I used to live in Lincoln and the basketball culture has changed a lot in the last five years I have been absent. I can say the development is unreal," said Morrow. "I can say the change is the biggest thing I will take away from the trip and will remember.

"The facilities, the environment, the number of people interested in the program, it's definitely improved. I would say that it was a pretty great experience to see the guys for the first time and get on the floor a little bit – to get a better understanding of Nebraska basketball. I enjoyed myself a lot."

Morrow's Nebraska ties run deep. His mother (Nafeesha Brown) was a first-team All-Big Eight forward in the mid 90s for the Huskers, while his father (Ed Morrow Sr.) was a member of the football team.

"The message to me from the coaching staff was they would take care of me. They made sure to let me know that I would enjoy my four years," said Morrow. "Right now I'm getting ready to take the ACT. Once I take the ACT, I will focus more on the recruiting side of things. I will be trying to figure out where I want to go."

Morrow is currently the nation's No. 25 power forward in the 2015 class. His offer list includes: Iowa, Iowa State, UMass, SMU, West Virginia, and Bradley.

So will Nebraska be a school of interest once Morrow starts to focus on recruiting a little more?

"Yes – definitely," said the junior.
