2006 shooting guard prospect K’Len Morris is a do everything type player for the 16-under Michigan Mustangs. Morris, 6-foot-5, 180-pounds, out of Grand Blanc (Mich.) High School rebounded, defended, and led the break, along with averaging 12 points per game at the TOC. Morris named five schools recruiting him when he spoke with
"I am hearing from Michigan, Michigan State, Butler, Cleveland State, and Wake Forest,” said Morris. “I really like Michigan because they like to run and they give their players freedom. I really like Wake Forest, also, because they like to run. I hate to run sets. I want to play in a system that has more of a flow to the offense.”
Morris, who averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds per game last high school season, is a very good straight ahead athlete with speed and jumping ability. He is very good at getting into the lane and finishing with either hand, and he can rebound on both ends of the court. He is extremely dangerous as a defensive rebounder who can then ignite the fastbreak without making an outlet pass.
He does need to improve lateral quickness as a perimeter defender. The consistency of his outside shot needs improving as well.
What does make the athletic Morris very attractive as a prospect is his size and the ability to play all three perimeter positions. He also knows how to play hard and never takes a possession off.
“I mainly play on the wing, but I love to play the point,” said Morris, who will attend the adidas Camp in Atlanta. “I would like to play more point.”
