After averaging 13 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists per game at the adidas Three Strips tournament at South Bend, Ind., this past weekend, 2006 prospect K’Len Morris and the Michigan Mustang Gold 16-under team will play up in the adidas Super 64 event in Las Vegas this weekend. The 6-foot-5, 190-pound shooting guard from Grand Blanc (Mich.) High School has an offer from a Big Ten school and is very close to committing.
K’Len is hearing from Michigan, Cleveland State, Purdue, Valparaiso, butler, Xavier, Missouri, and Michigan State has been here and there,” said Morris’ father Brad Morris. “The top three schools for K’Len are Michigan, Cleveland State, and Missouri. Michigan and Cleveland State have offered.
“We are going down to Michigan the first week in August to meet with Coach Amaker, and it looks like that is the direction K’Len is headed.”
When asked if the visit to Michigan went well, would he commit, K’Len Morris answered in the affirmative.
“Yep, that is the plan,” said Morris. “Most likely I will commit there by the beginning of this school year. The only way I would not end up there is if there were a coaching change.”
Some might see Morris as a perimeter player without a position, others see his versatility as his greatest strength.
“I definitely see it as a strength,” said Morris. “It creates mismatches.”
Brad Morris said Coach Amaker sees his soon as a very good wing player, who just needs to be on the court.
The scout on Morris is that he is a very athletic and flexible shooting guard who can either move down to the point guard position or up to the small forward position. He is long enough and relentless enough on the boards to play bigger than his size at small forward. As a point guard, he has a solid handle and a good feel for the game, but he does need to sharpen his ball handling skills. As a shooting guard, his outside shot is improving and becoming more consistent, although his greatest strength is attacking the basket with either hand and finishing with either hand.
Morris participated in the adidas Superstar Camp and finished as the No. 4 ranked underclassman at the camp. During last year’s high school season he averaged 14 points and 9 rebounds per game.
