J'Mison Morgan is a wanted man. The 6-foot-10, 275-pound center from South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas, Texas, is currently being recruited by several high-major basketball programs. According to South Oak Cliff head coach James Mays, Morgan, a four-star prospect, is scheduled to visit a Big 12 program this weekend.
"I talked to J'Mison and he told me that is going to Kansas this weekend for an unofficial visit," said Mays. J'Mison is a 6-foot-10, 275-pound center that will be a big part of our program this year. He is more in the mold of your traditional center.
When Darrell Arthur graduated from South Oak Cliff last year, he did so as one of the most successful and heavily recruited players to every come through the state of Texas.
Expectations at South Oak Cliff are always going to be high, and this year is no different.
If SOC hopes to make another run at a third straightState Championships, Morgan will have to be at his very best. After back-to-back titles, opposing teams will be licking their chops in hopes of defeating SOC.
Don't look for the No. 99 ranked player in the class of 2008 to spend too much time thinking about the recruiting process.
"Its way too early to tell what schools are really interested in J'Mison," said Mays. "Schools like Texas, Nebraska, Baylor and Texas A&M have already been by the gym. J'Mison is going to be a high-major player.
"J'Mison isn't the same type of player as Darrell Arthur, but he's still a good player. He is more of your traditional center that will play down low," he added. "I will tell you that J'Mison is a high-major player. He's got a lot of schools interested in him right now, but it's just too early to tell what J'Mison is going to do down the road."
