Darius Morris Announcing Tomorrow

Dylan Burkhardt

Darius Morris is planning to announce his decision tomorrow:

Morris, a 6-foot-3 rising senior at Los Angeles Windward High School, has kept Michigan among his top college choices, saying that Wolverines coach John Beilein has shown him “a lot of love” in the past year.

Morris, who also has offers from USC, Oregon State and Kentucky as well as drawing interest from schools like Arizona and several other PAC 10 schools, attended Beilein’s Elite Camp last month. According to an online diary, Morris wrote that he got a good feel for the school and Michigan’s program, spending time with guard Manny Harris during his stay.

It’s not a secret that Michigan has led for Darius for sometime so the decision date is certainly a positive.  Sealing the deal on Morris would be Beilein’s first big time impact recruit at Michigan. MLive also has a quote from Darius’ coach:

“I know Michigan is high on his list and I think coach Beilein has done a great job with him,” Villegas said. “He’s got something that you can’t teach – he’s got that knack – that basketball savvy that you can’t find. He’s a scoring guard, he’s 6-3, he can see the court. He’s a hard worker – you’re going to get a great package when you receive Darius Morris.”

Tomorrow could be a huge day for U-M basketball and we may have found our point guard of the future. I have said all along that the only worry with Darius’ recruitment would be if he kept pushing back his decision date. He stated he wanted to decide in late summer all along he appears to have stuck to it and the time has come.

    Something inside of me just won’t let me get excited until he says he’s coming to michigan. This has a chance to be a big domino in Belien’s recruiting.
