Long list of schools after Morrow

A long list of schools remain highly interested in Chicago native Ed Morrow.

Three-star power forward Ed Morrow is one of the highest energy players in the class of 2015. The Chicago (Ill.) Simeon standout showed well for himself at the NBA Players Association Top 100 Camp, and continues to have numerous schools track him on the recruiting trail.

"Thus far the spring and summer has been great," said Morrow. "I have been playing with a new group of guys this summer with the Mac Irvin Fire and it has been a great experience playing with and against the top players in the country."

Recruiting wise Morrow has taken things slowly, and his list of suitors is still long.

"Just about everybody has offered is still recruiting me hard," noted Morrow. "Schools like Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, SMU, Creighton, Georgia Tech, Georgia, West Virginia, and Virginia Tech are all talking to me."

Both of Morrow's parents went to Nebraska, and Morrow himself was born in Nebraska. Recently he made an unofficial visit to the school and he came away impressed.

"It wasn't a new experience, but with me not being there in a while there was a lot of new things," said Morrow of his trip. "Nebraska just really supports their program and I like the coaching staff and the program there."

Traditionally Iowa has need to recruit Chicago in order to be effective, and they are working on that again, and Morrow is a big piece to their recruiting puzzle.

"Coach (Fran) McCaffery stays in touch with me a lot," noted Morrow. "I hear from him three or four times a week, and I would say I have a real solid relationship with them."

Minnesota Head Coach Richard Pitino is also working hard in the city of Chicago, and continues to make Morrow a top target.

"With Coach Pitino things are going great," noted Morrow. "I hear from him as much as anybody, and they have an up and coming program."

At the moment Morrow says he isn't close to make a college decision and would like to take a few visits, though he currently isn't sure of where or what schools he will see.
