Mountaineers On Morris’ List

One of the nation’s top shooting guards is still on the market in the 2012 recruiting class and he has the Mountaineers on his list.

Arlington Country Day shooting guard Carlos Morris recently de-committed from South Carolina, citing the uncertainty of head coach Darrin Horn’s future with the Gamecocks.

“He was on the hot seat and I didn’t want to stay committed and lose out on the other schools,” stated Morris. “So I wanted to open it back up and see what it is.”

Now Morris is listening to other schools as he tries finding to a new place to showcase his talents. He is ranked as a 4-star recruit by and was recently in Morgantown taking part in the Remember the Miners Mountaineer Showcase.

Even though West Virginia has already signed two shooting guards in the 2012 class, the Mountaineers still have their eyes on Morris. The 6-foot-6 prospect says WVU head coach Bob Huggins is the type of coach he would like to play for.

“He’s just like our head coach,” joked Morris about how animated Huggins is on the sideline.

“He pushes players,” continued Morris. “I just like to be pushed. Being pushed makes you play better.”

Morris says the best part of his game is his shooting ability, but understands he stills has a lot to learn about the game. He’s obviously hoping to find a coach who can help him with that. As of now he has offers from South Carolina, Cincinnati and Missouri. He is also getting interest from many schools in the Big East, SEC Conference and West Virginia.

WVU hasn’t offered Morris a scholarship, but he says West Virginia is a program he’s been following.

“I’m definitely considering West Virginia,” said Morris. “I don’t know where they’re at right now, but I’m definitely considering them. I’m open to every school, but they’re one of my schools I’m looking at.”

The early signing period ended back in November, but in mid-April Morris will be able to sign his letter of intent, with the school of his choice, when the regular signing period begins.
