Trey Burke’s prep career has been defined by winning. You can count the number of losses that Burke’s Northland squad suffered during his tenure on one hand. Playing for one of the midwest’s top AAU programs, All-Ohio Red, Burke added an AAU national championship to his resume as well. Despite all of his team success, it wasn’t until his senior year that Burke began to start collecting individual accolades.

Video: Steven Haney Jr. at Grand Rapids Storm Classic

Another spring AAU recruiting video from our friend, Michigan Prep Stars, this one featuring 2013 Lansing Eastern wing guard Steven Haney Jr. Haney is known as a shooter, which will be clear after watching the video, but also has a great combination of length and skill. Haney lists Michigan, Michigan State, Harvard, Illinois and Nebraska at this point. He suffered an ankle injury in Akron at the King James Classic but expects to play this weekend at the Spiece Classic where he should face a much higher level of competition than you see in this clip.

Now that Morris is officially leaving his name in the NBA draft, it’s time to start thinking about next year’s team without Morris.

First, a word on Morris’s decision. This was a secret that wasn’t necessarily well kept.

We’d be surprised if Morris didn’t sign with Andy Miller or Leon Rose when he makes his final decision.

Report: Darius Morris will stay in NBA draft

MorrisDarius201011_thumb[1]Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com just tweeted that Darius Morris will leave his name in the NBA Draft.

Darius Morris has decided to keep his name in the draft and will not be returning to Michigan, according to a source close to the situation.

Givony is one of the best draft reporters out there and this report confirms all of the information that we’ve received over the past several weeks. In this context, sources close to the situation generally refer to agents involved in the courting process.

Morris hasn’t officially signed with an agent but we expect that to be announced reasonable soon. Currently Morris is in Vegas working out with Alec Burks, Kawhi Leonard, Josh Selby and others.
