Basketball: Morris lines up a recruiting trip to Michigan

June 23, 2008 | 11:18 am

Michigan has been considered one of the favorites to land a commitment from Darius Morris of Windward for quite sometime now, especially since his father had so many good things to say about the Wolverines and what they had to offer his son in this blog, back at the end of April.

That said, it shouldn't come as a big surprise to learn there's a plan for Morris to visit Ann Arbor on June 29-30, according to quotes. The 6-foot-3 senior-to-be point guard has offers from Oregon St., Washington St. and USC. Other programs expressing interest include Arizona, Kentucky and Texas.

All the other schools in the mix, however, might not end up mattering much, given the fact Morris is high on Michigan and its coach, John Beilein. The two have been in contact for months and a face-to-face meeting looms as a potential deal-breaker. Could a commitment be forthcoming? Stay tuned.
