2009 four-star prospect Darius Morris registered on the national radar with his strong play during the summer. The 6-foot-3, 175-pound guard has continued that strong play for Los Angeles Windward High School and is hearing from a number of top programs from across the country.
Michigan, Washington State and Wyoming have offered Morris, and these schools along with some others have watched Morris play this winter.
"Coach Romar from Washington and two of his assistants watched me the other day," said Morris. "Michigan, Georgetown, Washington State, Santa Clara, Loyola Marymount and Wyoming have also been to games."
Expecting more offers to come his way during the summer, Morris is reluctant to narrow down his school list.
"I like the three schools that have offered me early," he said. "I also like Georgetown, Washington, Texas and Georgia Tech. I've been in contact with the coaches from Georgetown, Washington and Texas, and Georgia Tech has been sending me a lot of mail.
"I'm not in a rush. After the summer I should have a lot more offers. I'm improving my game and am willing to wait things out a while. I really am open to anything. Harvard just contacted me, and my father was really excited about that."
Morris did note that Michigan and Washington State are to schools that he would definitely like to visit.
Averaging 27 points, six rebounds and five assists, Morris is happy about his development as a combo guard.
"I'm doing a little bit of everything for my team," he said. "I'm trying to get the best out of my teammates and help out with rebounding as well. Early in the game, I come off a lot of screens looking to score, and then later in the game, I take over the point. I want to develop into the type of player who can contribute in college at either guard position.
Darius Morris scouting report:
Smooth and crafty with the basketball, Morris has a sound feel for the point guard position. Still developing physically, he projects to have the length and shooting ability to also play off the ball. Strength must improve regardless of position.
