Junior college guard Carlos Morris has committed to Minnesota.
“Just felt it was the best spot for me,” the 6-foot-5, 170-pound Morris said by text.
Morris will have two years of D-1 eligibility at Minnesota.
He also considered UAB and Seton Hall, among others.
Morris is a onetime South Carolina commit who averaged 13.3 points, 4.1 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 1.3 steals last season.
“I’m a scoring guard who can rebound,” he said. “I see the floor and bring a winner’s mentality.”
The guard out of Chipola (FL) College joins power forward Josh Martin and guard Nate Mason in Richard Pitino’s 2014 class.
