Morrow: "I Really Enjoyed It"

Anthony Morrow's coach, Charlotte Latin veteran Jerry Faulkner, told his star player that choosing a college and a wife would be the two most important decisions in his life.

What he didn't say was how difficult the first one would be.

``Unbelievably tough," Morrow said.

The 6-5, 185-pound Morrow, who has taken visits to Tennessee and N.C. State over the past two weekends, said he could be happy at any of his four finalists – which also includes Charlotte and Georgia Tech.

Morrow once again raved about his most recent visit.

``I really enjoyed it," he said. "The first thing they did to start off the tour was for me to meet with a counselor and talk to the communications director. They kept stressing academics."

``I didn't really know the coaches that well before the visit. I had just spoken with them on the phone," added Morrow. "I think I gained a pretty good relationship with them over the visit."

Morrow's mother, Angela, also went with him on the trip – as she did the previous week to Tennessee – and as she will for her son's final two visits.

``It was really, really nice," Angela said of the trip to Raleigh. "They weigh academics and athletics on the same level and that's definitely a priority for us."

Morrow also bonded with the players, especially host Tony Bethel.

``All of them were real down to earth," Morrow said. "I felt like they were just like my boys back home. That's very important to me."

``Nobody on the team tried to fill my head with a lot of stuff," he added. "I can tell when somebody's being sincere and everybody on the team gave me advice, but there was no pressure. They were just telling me to go where my heart tells me to go. I respect that."

Morrow will take the half-hour ride to Charlotte this weekend and then go to Georgia Tech the following weekend before talking to his mother and Faulkner and making a decision.

``It's hard because I like all four of them," Morrow said. "I can be happy at any of the four."
