One of the top centers in the state of Texas, if not the nation, is rising star J'Mison "Bobo" Morgan from Dallas South Oak Cliff. The 6-foot-10, 265 lb. junior prospect is a true, classic post player and he showed off his skills this past weekend for Urban DFW Elite in the Kingwood Classic AAU Tournament.
"My recruiting has really picked up lately," Morgan said. "Vanderbilt, Alabama, and Coach Cox at Kentucky stopped by this past week. They are high on my list. A lot of schools are calling trying to set up a visit to come see me at the school."
Morgan's stock has risen lately due to his improved conditioning and his superior post skills that are hard to find today in many high school prospects.
"I've worked hard on improving my quickness and taking my game to another level," Morgan said. "That's helped my post game a lot. I've also improved on my defense and shot blocking."
The Dallas native also is known for his soft hands, crucial for any good post player.
"People tell me I have what it takes to be a post player at the next level," Morgan said. "The key is having soft hands and being quick and making your moves down low. My hands have always been good, so I just needed to work on my quickness and extending my shooting range."
Apparently, Morgan's hard work is paying dividends as he claims offers from Kansas, Alabama, UNLV, Georgia Tech, and Baylor. Teams like Vanderbilt, Kentucky, and Texas A&M are also getting serious about the four star prospect from the lone star state.
Mark Turgeon recently took over at Texas A&M. How has the change in College Station affected Morgan's recruitment?
"A&M is certainly a school I'd consider. It's a good staff," Morgan said. "We'll have to see what happens. I'm completely open at this point and I just want to play this out and see what happens."
Morgan will continue to play with the Urban DFW Elite AAU squad through the spring and summer. Expect the big man to take most of his official visits in the fall and take his time picking a school.
