Brian Morrison may become a Husky

Former Lake Washington guard Brian Morrison has left UCLA prior to enrolling and intends to transfer to the University of Washington. The 6' 2" guard left the University of North Carolina at the end of the 2002 school year and was transferring to UCLA. He wanted to be closer to home and after arriving in Los Angeles realized that he was still too far away from the Northwest.

Brian had not yet enrolled at UCLA nor had he signed a National Letter of Intent, thus he remained a recruitable athlete. Brian reportedly initiated the contact with UW and contacted the staff about his desire to transfer. He has not been offered a scholarship at this time. As was the situation at UCLA, Brian will have to sit out the 2002-2003 season before becoming eligible at UW.

He will have two years of eligibility remaining once his year of ineligibility is completed.

As a sophomore at North Carolina he averaged 7.1 points this year and led the Tar Heels with 42 three-point field goals made. He was third on the team with 72 assists. He scored a career-high 21 points in Carolina's win over Georgia Tech and added 19 in a win over Saint Joseph's. He scored in double figures 10 times in 28 games and had a season-high six assists on two occasions.

As a senior at Lake Washington Brian was a first-team All-State pick and averaged 18.3ppg in leading the Kangs to the District playoffs. He was selected to play in the Sonny Vacarro Roundball Classic, a national all-star game, where he scored 19 points and was named Co-MVP.
