The city of Memphis is one of the top cities in the country for basketball talent. Because of that, some guys can fly under the radar. Take for instance the case of Earvin Morris.
A lengthy 6-foot-4 junior wing at Memphis (Tenn.) East, Morris has developed into a legitimate prospect in his own right while playing alongside 2013 four-star Nick King.
"I'm a slasher type who can get into the lane and finish," Morris told Rivals.com. "I can get my own shot off of the dribble and I will rebound."
A fine ball-handler who often initiates his teams offense, Morris uses his athleticism and above average first step to get to the rim. He can also make mid-range jumpers and is an above average playmaker in transition.
"I'm working on my overall speed, my ball handling and my defense," said Morris. "I really want to improve my lateral footspeed and get stronger with the ball."
Somewhat surprisingly, Morris has gone a bit overlooked by schools. To date, he says that Kent State and East Tennessee State have done the most work with him.
However, Morris isn't worried about the relative lack of attention to this point. He understands that he's on a team that should receive plenty of attention over the next few years and he figures that if he takes care of his business, the recruiting will take care of itself.
"I'm looking for a school that will give me the best chance to reach my potential on and off the floor," said Morris. "I would also like a place that gets my family inovlved and looks out for what's best for me. It doesn't really matter what style they play, I think I can fit my style in anywhere."
