STRENGTHS OF CHRISTIAN MORRIS' INDIVIDUAL GAME: There are many aspects of Christian Morris' game to like. First, his improvement in his overall game. Christian had a solid summer and many top schools tried to get involved. Morris showed his loyalty by committing to Rutgers since the coaching staff had been involved for a while.

Second, Morris has the power and strength to make an immediate impact in such a physical league like the Big East. However, his footwork and hands are nimble enough to be a player to help on both ends of the court.

It's rare to find big men like Morris, who can hammer you around the rim. Fred Hill and his coaching staff did an exceptional job in sealing this commitment up before it got out of hand.

CONCLUSION: Morris will be an inside force for Rutgers. He's a player who will give you an impact around the rim. And in the game of college basketball, it's one big part of winning basketball games on a consistent basis.
