K'Len Morris, a 6-foot-5, 180-pound shooting guard from Grand Blanc (Mich.) High School, was one of the highlights at the adidas Superstar camp in Atlanta, Ga., last week. The class of 2006 prospect put on an offensive clinic and he did it in front of a number of college coaches. A handful of Big Ten programs have already jumped into the mix and many more are sure to follow.
Morris took advantage of the national stage to prove to himself, and onlookers, that he is one of the more intriguing young players in the country. That is his main focus for the weekend, he says.
“Hopefully, I can broaden my horizons here and people can see me more,” he said.
In the first day of evaluation for college recruiters, Morris put on a great offensive display. His jumper has made serious strides since evaluating him at the Spiece Run N Slam two months ago.
Morris sunk a trio of treys and shot the ball at the top of his jump. He loves to penetrate and score around the bucket. On numerous occasions, he switched hands and went high off the glass for two. Athletically, Morris can play above the rim and he loves to run the floor.
“I’ve been hearing from Michigan a lot lately,” Morris said. “I go up to their open gyms every once and a while so I know them pretty good.”
The Wolverines were on the baseline for one of his games here at the adidas camp. Morris also listed Purdue and Xavier as the schools that have been in the most contact. With Thad Matta switching gears to Ohio State, don’t be surprised to see the Buckeyes coach battle it out with new Musketeer head man Sean Miller. Morris said he’s been planning a trip Purdue in August but nothing was set in stone as of yet.
“I got a letter from Florida the other day, too,” he said.
His mailbox, barring anything less than his play on Thursday, should keep his mailbox full for the remainder of the summer.
Morris will be at the adidas 64 in Las Vegas from July 22-26.
