The Michigan Wolverines have received a commitment from K'Len Morris, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard from Grand Blanc (MI) High School. After meeting with the Michigan coaching staff and admissions on Sunday afternoon, Morris and his family decided to accept the scholarship offer that Tommy Amaker had extended.
“We arrived on campus yesterday (Sunday) at around 4:00,”Mr. Morris said. “We met with people in the admissions department and then spent about 45 minutes to an hour with Coach Amaker. When Coach Amaker extended us the scholarship offer, we gladly accepted.”
Morris, who averaged 14-points, nine rebounds and three assists per game as a sophomore, is more than happy with his decision to give a commitment to Michigan. While a number of other high major programs were heavily interested in the 2006 shooting guard, Morris is looking forward to playing close to home.
“We are very excited about this decision,” Mr. Morris said. “I know the coaching staff is just as excited about our decision. They love what K’Len can do on the court, but they also love his passion and commitment to the game of basketball.”
With his decision to attend Michigan behind him, Morris indicated that one area in particular made his decision that much easier.
“The education that I will receive from Michigan was one of the biggest reasons that I decided to make my decision at this time,” K’Len Morris said. “Getting a degree from Michigan is huge. It will open up many doors for my life after college.
“I also like the fact that Coach Amaker is going to allow me to play the point guard, shooting guard and small forward position,” he added. “I like the idea of getting a rebound and pushing the ball up the court without looking for somebody to start the break. That is something I really liked.”
