JUCO Guard Carlos Morris Clarifies Recruitment (UPDATED)
Junior college guard Carlos Morris clarified his recruitment with SNY.tv Wednesday, saying he plans to visit Minnesota this weekend and then probably UAB and Arkansas next month.
“Minnesota Friday through Sunday but that’s all I got set up right now,” the 6-foot-5, 173-pound Morris said by phone. “We’re going to talk more on campus but there’s questions I gotta ask them [about his role].”
He plans to visit UAB and Arkansas in October.
“I got a good relationship with UAB,” Morris said. “I’ll probably visit UAB sometime next month and Arkansas, too. Probably sometime next month.”
Morris has already visited Seton Hall but with the additions of guards Isaiah Whitehead and Khadeen Carrington, they no longer appear to be an option.
“I know they just signed two guards at my position so they full in the backcourt,” Morris said.
Morris is a onetime South Carolina commit who averaged 13.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals last season.
He stressed that although he’s looking at these schools, he has also heard from Georgia and Oregon State.
“I’m wide open,” he said. “There’s schools involved but I’m wide open.”
Asked when he might decide, Morris said, “It’s just whenever I get that feeling. Just whenever I get that feeling.”
