Darryl Morsell, a 6-foot-5, 200-pound combo guard from Baltimore (MD) Mount Saint Joseph and the Team Melo AAU Program, cancelled his official visit to Dayton for this upcoming weekend, he told ZAGSBLOG.
Morsell said he’s still considering Dayton among his top three, but all signs point to him focusing on his other two schools, Notre Dame and Maryland. He previously cut Villanova and Virginia Tech from his top five. The news of the cancelled first was first reported by Pat Lawless.
Notre Dame coach Mike Brey had a home visit with Morsell last week.
“Come to Notre Dame and be great,” Morsell said was the message.
Morsell visited Maryland for their Midnight Madness this past weekend.
“It was good,” he said.
Dwayne Wise of Team Melo said whoever gets Morsell is getting a guy who can contribute immediately.
“Darryl has the potential to be a rotation guy at either of those programs [Notre Dame or Maryland] as a freshman,” Wise said. “His work ethic, athleticism and improved jump shot will allow him to play some 1, 2 or 3 at the college level.”
